Take Your Cyber Career to a New Level

Enrolling now for the October 28th start.

State-sponsored hackers. Ransomware. Supply chain attacks. Spyware. Malware. The list of cyber threats keeps growing. At every organization, from the smallest to the largest, cybersecurity has become a priority issue. It’s not enough to respond to threats–it is equally important that cyber professionals are prepared to protect and defend the most valuable assets of an organization from being compromised.

Our Reputation Stands Out

Bay Path’s Master of Science (MS) in Cybersecurity is an online program that prepares students for leadership and decision-making positions in companies, educational institutions, organizations, nonprofits, and government.

Ranked the 5th Best Online Master's in Cybersecurity by Forbes for 2024, the MS in Cybersecurity offers three concentrations: Generalist, Cyber Defense, and Digital Forensics. Our 30-credit flexible and customized cybersecurity online degree options allow you to work while you earn your degree, enabling you to further your professional career.

What Makes Our Online Cybersecurity Program Distinctive

The National Security Agency (NSA) and a committee of academic peers have validated Bay Path University's Master of Science in Cybersecurity program through the 2028 academic year.
