Cybersecurity, Bachelor's to M.S. Accelerated Program
The accelerated bachelor's to master's program in cybersecurity is designed for working professionals pursuing a bachelor's degree in any SPS degree program who have an interest in pursuing a Master of Science in Cybersecurity once they complete their undergraduate program.
This accelerated program allows undergraduate students to complete up to 12 graduate-level credits and have these credits count as undergraduate elective credits, and after successfully being accepted into an SPS graduate program, matriculate these credits towards the graduate program requirements.
For additional information see the catalog entries for the following programs:
Students must maintain a minimum 3.00 overall grade point average (GPA) and a 3.50 GPA in their major.
Students will not need to apply for admission to the graduate program, assuming they graduate with a 3.50 overall GPA or above and have successfully obtained a "B" or better in each of the 12 credits of the accelerated sequence. Instead, students petition to be matriculated into the graduate program.
The program director will review the materials and make a final decision. If students do not meet the 3.50 overall GPA requirement or fail to obtain a "B" or better in the bridge program courses, they may submit a full application for admission through graduate education, which requires supplemental materials that may improve the probability of admission.
