The Master of Science in Security Technologies (MSST) degree program prepares students to address the threats and emerging security challenges of tomorrow, today. We only admit the best and brightest, carefully selecting the next generation of leaders through a rigorous interview process. MSST applications are reviewed on a rolling basis for the program's September start, and qualified applicants will be invited to interview with the MSST director of graduate studies. Admission is awarded based on space availability, so we highly encourage interested candidates to apply early. Key dates are as follows:
