The online Master of Information and Cybersecurity (MICS) program from the UC Berkeley School of Information (I School) prepares you with the skills needed to become a cybersecurity leader and fill the industry’s growing talent gap.


Curriculum Spotlight

Through the MICS multidisciplinary curriculum, you will learn to manage the complex relationship between human behaviors and the advanced technology used to secure information. You will complete 9 units of foundational course work and 15 units of electives, and attend one in-person immersion experience with your classmates. Featured courses include:

Beyond the Code: Cybersecurity in Context

Learn to adopt different lenses — legal, economic, political economy, and ethical — to better understand how digital technologies penetrate almost every aspect of human experience and how different forces enable and constrain security technologies and policies.

Network Security

Advance your understanding of network programming in a language of your choice, learn to analyze packet traces using tools like Wireshark and mitmproxy, and apply security principles to analyze and determine network security.
