After college I joined the military intelligence branch of the Army. Because of the career field I was in, the only jobs I was offered at the conclusion of my service were overseas. I wanted to return home but also wanted to ensure I received the same satisfaction I enjoyed in the intelligence field. Ultimately, I decided cybersecurity was a natural transition, and that obtaining a master's degree would be my best course of action.
I like to think the only thing you can control is your own actions, and being proactive is the best way to realize your goals. Any time you can increase your level of expertise or distinguish yourself within your field, that time and money will yield results.
Even before graduating, I was approached by companies about job opportunities in cybersecurity simply because they understand the rigor of the program adequately prepares you for the fast-paced information security industry.
I don't know anyone who doesn't like competitive tuition fees, flexible course schedules or small classes that guarantee a high level of student/teacher interaction.
Everyone who teaches me has had an extensive career in their field so they don’t just focus on the academic side, they bring a lot of real world experience into the classroom.
I don't feel like a number within a sea of other students. Everyone from the staff to the faculty took the time to answer any questions and help me with whatever I needed. It feels like a small town where people still help each other.
Personal interactions with professors are important to me. I have taken a few classes online due the flexibility it offered me with my busy schedule. I even completed the entire program earlier than I expected because of the online class options.
