Degree options bar imageQuestions?

The Master of Research (M.Res.) in Cyberpsychology degree is a unique program designed to meet the long-standing needs of disseminating research skills to those working with and dealing with the psychology related to all aspects of cybersecurity. It is a new and important area attracting the need for research combining these two fields of study and the first in America at Master’s level.  The Cyberpsychology degree is for current professionals in the field of cybersecurity and those with associate knowledge that is needed to be incorporated into research. The M.Res. in Cyberpsychology program is designed as a degree by primarily research where students will quickly become able to engage in leadership, research, and publishing. It is aimed at those that may want to explore research studies before starting a Doctorate by research. Likewise, those that work in research and want a master’s qualification but in a subject specific to their work. The degree is 30 credits and divided into 5 classes. The first two classes are online taught classes where the fundamentals of research and principles are introduced and identified. The remaining three classes are where, under the guide of a Chair, you will plan, research, collect data and then write this in a Thesis to defend.
