SU, Estonia Universities Launch Cybersecurity Master's Program

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Salisbury University is again teaming up with Estonia universities, this time to teach students to "protect the Internet."    

Yesterday, SU officials, along with the University of Tartu and Tallinn University of Technology, announced a partnership for students to earn a master's degree in cybersecurity.  The 5-year program came together because of the increasing demand globally.

"There's a huge need for cybersecurity workers, maybe 10-30,000 in the next couple of years and we wanted to find a way to train students in that area," said Karen Olmstead, Dean of the Richard A. Henson School of Science and Technology.    

The program will start next fall and it is broken down as a "3+2", where students will earn a bachelor degree in math, computer sciences or information systems before finishing up their M.S. degree.
