ACCEPTED into Georgia Tech's OMS Cybersecurity! - jsd - 11-01-2018

Today I found out that I have been accepted into the first cohort of Georgia Institute of Technology's new Online Master of Science in Cybersecurity program!! This will be for the Information Security Track (as opposed to their Energy Systems Track or Policy Track). I thought this was a long shot when I applied, especially since they said they were limiting the first round of admissions to 250 students and there was a very large application pool.

Classes start January 7th, and I'm limited to taking two courses at a time. So this will be a much longer program than I'm used to, which might be hard to adjust to after finishing two undergrad degrees in about year or less each.

I'll use this thread as a progress share once I start up, and let everyone know how the program goes.

I'm very excited, even though a little nervous about the caliber of work and having to commit to such a long program.

Go Yellow Jackets!

Just under $10k. My work reimburses up to $5k a year, so since this is a 2 year program it’ll end up being free for me  Big Grin

Nice! Congrats!

Taking two courses at a time, but is that per semester or self-paced?

I am considering applying for the OMSCS but I don't want to start a program if it will take two years to complete it. I am leaning toward the WGU MBA or MSML partially because of the fact that I can get both of those done in under a year if I wanted to, or complete one in a few months and be free to start on a multi-year Ph.D. after that if I still have the itch to gain more degrees.
