The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Cybersecurity Management at Nova Southeastern University's College of Engineering and Computing requires a minimum of 67 credits. Its unique format combines traditional and online instruction to provide professionals the opportunity to pursue graduate study while continuing to work in their current positions. The cybersecurity management graduate doctoral program is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, research program that prepares graduates for key positions in academia, in federal, state and local government agencies, as well as in business and industry. The curriculum combines both technically intensive and management- focused security courses to provide a comprehensive approach to the study of information security/cybersecurity management. Each student must complete seven core courses, two doctoral research courses, and a doctoral research dissertation.
The Ph.D. in Cybersecurity Management degree 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, and the school is authorized to issue certificates to students who complete such courses.
