CSU launches new online cybersecurity master's degree

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The University of Georgia Board of Regents approved Columbus State University's Master of Science with a major in Cybersecurity Management on Thursday.

This new online degree will be available for students to begin during the spring 2018 semester. The 30 semester-hour program will be housed in the D. Abbott Turner College of Business' TSYS School of Computer Science.

"This new degree is designed to appeal to working professionals, and is the next step in the development of our new TSYS Center for Cybersecurity," said Chris Markwood, president of Columbus State University. "The demand for this program is very clear."

The school recently hired Michael Barker, a former Atlanta technology expert and state-licensed private detective specializing in digital forensics as the director of the new TSYS Center for Cybersecurity.
