A Cross-collaborative Effort

Mercer’s new M.S. in Cybersecurity program is a joint program between the School of Engineering, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Stetson-Hatcher School of Business, and the Center for Professional Advancement. The degree itself is awarded by the School of Engineering, however the program was co-operatively developed and is taught and maintained across departments in these academic units. Admission to the program will begin in 2021.
