The Master of Science in Information Assurance & Cybersecurity (MSIS) is a 36 credit-hour degree program at Nova Southeastern University's College of Engineering and Computing. Offered online and on-campus in South Florida, the MSIS degree program is designed for someone who wants to design, program, enhance and develop cyber security technologies that secure information and systems. If you want to select and maintain those technologies and develop policies and processes to ensure the security of an organization then you should look at the M.S. in Management Information Systems with Concentration in Information Assurance & Cybersecurity Management.

This security program is recognized by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). As a result of this recognition federal agencies may sponsor civilian and military personnel to take the school's certified graduate courses. Individuals may apply to take one or more certified information security courses as non-degree students.

Students in the program may be eligible to apply for admission to the Ph.D. programs in Information Assurance or Information Systems before finishing the M.S.; see specific requirements under those Ph.D. programs.
