The curriculum for the Fox Master of Science in IT Auditing and Cyber-Security is designed to deliver both a breadth of expertise in the industry as well as a depth of specialized knowledge. That’s why the program features a core curriculum with broad-based courses in protecting information and security, follows with courses that concentrate in one of two specialization tracks, and then finishes with a project-based CISA or CISSP preparatory capstone course.
