    City University of Seattle

    Does anyone have any information or experience with this school? They are offering an online Masters of Science in Information Security , but it requires 16 courses at the total cost of around 30k or more. It seems like a good program, but the price and amount of courses makes it less desirable. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    What's wrong with the amount of courses? City University is on the quarter system and 16 courses would be 48 quarter hours, which is about right for a master's degree.

    If you're looking for cost effective for Master degree in Information Security . Have you looked at Western Governors University ? or Columbus State University?

    I have looked at WGU at least. My biggest concern is the technical level of the courses. I guess I'm trying to have my cake and eat it too! I'm looking for a Master's program that is more technical than theory and also something where I'll learn. I've been looking at several options for months and National University might be a good fit. It's 20k for the program and can be completed in 1 year. But, Dakota State University is going to offer a Masters in Applied Computer Science , which should fill my needs. They haven't posted anything about it yet, but they are starting a few courses this fall. I think I may wait to see the curriculum before I make any decisions. I just want to make sure that my time/money is well spent. I'm not looking just for a piece of paper. I'll take a look at Columbus State University, thanks!
