Cyber Security program structure

There are plenty of ways to study cyber security. Undergraduate programs are usually offered as a BSc and last a minimum of three years. However, most universities recommend that students undertake an additional 12-month placement during their studies. As such, four-year bachelor’s programs are common.

Once you’ve got your bachelor’s under your belt, you can go on to study an MSc. Master’s programs are usually completed within a year, but they can be studied on a part-time basis over two years.

If you want to achieve the highest formal degree possible, you can enroll in a PhD program. These research-based courses typically require five or six years of study.

Cyber security programs aim to provide students with a solid theoretical and practical grounding in the field. Consequently, you’ll attend a mixture of lectures, seminars, tutorials, practical workshops, and hands-on laboratories.

The content of your cyber security course will largely depend on where you choose to study. However, most programs across the globe will offer classes in these core areas:

  • Cyber threat intelligence and incident response
  • Software and security management
  • Cryptography
  • Security design principles
  • Computer law and ethics
  • Cyber defense
  • Cyber threats
  • Computer networks and systems
