Students have three opportunities to begin the online Master of Science in Internet Technology–Cybersecurity Concentration each year. For our annual academic calendar and application deadline information, please contact an admission advisor at msit@pace.edu.

The Seidenberg School admission committee reviews completed applications on a rolling basis and notifies prospective students when their application is under review. The Pace Office of Graduate Admission informs applicants of the committee’s decision—denied or accepted—within five business days of completed application submission. Accepted students receive their letter of acceptance from Pace via both email and the U.S. Postal Service.

Candidates can apply up to two weeks prior to their desired start date. We encourage prospective students, however, to submit their application well before the deadline if possible.


Admission Requirements

Candidates are required to hold a four-year undergraduate degree or equivalent from a regionally accredited institution.

Though many students hold a bachelor’s degree in a technical or related area (e.g., information technology, information systems, computer science, software engineering, computer engineering, sciences or mathematics), it is not a requirement.

Students with non-technical degrees may be required to take additional courses as electives.
