MS in Criminology
Understanding, predicting, and preventing crime is the goal of our graduate-level study of criminology. The curriculum of the master’s program explores the societal, political, and cultural factors that can cause or contribute to crime, as well as topics related to leadership and ethics, crime policy and prevention, and decision-making. Students are encouraged to personalize the course by using a subject of special interest as an area of research and study.
MS in Information Assurance
The world's dependence on computers and information systems continues to deepen, creating a growing, but increasingly competitive, market for information technology professionals. Organizations of all types need to ensure that the confidentiality and integrity of data are protected at all times.
Information Assurance, which includes cyber security, is the proactive process of designing and implementing systems to protect information from internal and external threats. Regis University's Master of Science in Information Assurance degree will ensure that you have the tools and skills to do so — even as technology continues to change and advance.
Regis University is designated as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education by the National Security Agency. The curriculum is modeled on the curricula guidelines and recommendations provided by:
- The Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) 4000 training standards
- (ISC)2 Ten Domains of Knowledge
Regis University is committed to helping you pursue financial aid opportunities. In addition to federal aid, you may be qualified to receive scholarships, loans, or grants from government programs or other organizations, or you may receive college credit in lieu of required coursework.
Over half of all Regis University students use some form of financial aid to finance their education. In the 2011-2012 academic year alone, Regis University provided more than $145 million in federal, state, and institutional financial aid to its eligible students, and the amount is certain to increase in coming years. Awards are based on financial need; assistance is also available to students without need.
