The Master of Information and Cybersecurity (MICS) consists of 27 units of course work and is designed to be completed in 20 months (five terms). Courses are 3 units each and divided into foundation courses, advanced courses, and a capstone. You will also attend an immersion on the UC Berkeley campus, or other locations relevant to cybersecurity.

“Our cybersecurity program is deliberately multi-disciplinary. We want you to think about these problems from many lenses, not just the technical lens.”

Chris Hoofnagle, Adjunct Professor at the UC Berkeley School of Information and School of Law
