    For those of you who are interested, AMU has recently launched a new MS program in Cybersecurity Studies. No electives in the program, nor are there concentrations at this time, but it seems to have a pretty good spread of policy and technical related courses.

    HLSS505 Security Risk Management
    INTL647 Cyber Intelligence
    ISSC621 Computer Forensics

    They do have some pretty interesting degree programs. I'm not sure how well regarded they are though. I mean outside of DL circles of course.

    It looks very impressive and it is a real world job skill. UMUC has a faculty vacency for someone to teach that very thing.

    One of the heads of the Cybersecurity Policy program from UMUC left there to go to APUS to stand up their program.

    I think the APUS campus is okay outside of DL circles, but you have to take it for what it is; a university for people already established in their fields, but don't have a degree. The academic rigor doesn't stack up against big-name public schools, but they do have some great professors, and you will do work for your degree.
