The need for Cyber Science faculty is significant in our digital economy, where technology and advanced computer systems play a critical role in our daily lives.
Cyber Science faculty members are crucial for several reasons.
First, cyber science faculty members are essential for educating the future workforce, conducting cutting-edge research, and addressing the complex challenges posed by technology. Their role is critical in preparing students for careers in the digital economy and advancing our understanding of Cyber Science and its impact on our society.
To address this pressing national security concern, Capitol has introduced two new degree programs. The Master’s and Doctor of Education in Cyber Science degrees. These new degrees address the need for strong cyber educators in both the K-12 community as well as at the the four-year college level. The NICE framework has defined two work roles for the US government: Cyber Instructor (OV-TEA-002) and Cyber Instructional Curriculum Developer (OV-TEA-001).
Capitol's Master of Education in Cyber Science is tailored for current educators who wish to advance their knowledge and opportunities in teaching and research, as well as new industry professionals with a desire to teach at the highest levels and contribute to the body of knowledge in the diverse field of Cyber Science. Students will pursue a deep proficiency in this area using interdisciplinary methodologies, cutting-edge courses, and dynamic faculty. Graduates will explore the many facets of the field and contribute to new ideas and research, while quickly developing the skills needed to pursue a career or further their education with a doctorate.
Capitol's Doctor of Education (EdD) in Cyber Science is for current or experienced professionals in a field related to cyber, computer science, or technology management. Students will pursue a deep proficiency in this area using interdisciplinary methodologies, cutting-edge courses, and dynamic faculty. Graduates will contribute significantly to the Cyber Science field through the creation of new knowledge and ideas and will quickly develop the skills to engage in leadership, research, and publishing.
If you are interested in an exciting career as a cyber science educator, whether you currently teach or work in the industry, these degrees prepare you to enter into or advance your career.
