The MICS program will address both technical and interdisciplinary aspects of cybersecurity including cryptography, secure programming, web security, operating system security, and network security as well as business models, policy and legal frameworks, national security considerations, ethical issues, standards making and the roles of users, government, and industry.
MICS students and faculty will use 2U's online platform to meet weekly in live online classes in an intimate seminar-style setting. Between live class sessions, students will study interactive course content created by UC Berkeley faculty. Students will also have multiple opportunities to visit the Berkeley campus to meet classmates and faculty in person and to attend specially curated cybersecurity lectures and workshops.
cybersecurity@berkeley consists of 27 units and is designed for working professionals with a technical background and programming experience. The first class is expected to begin January 2018, pending approval by UC Berkeley, the University of California, and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
