About Us

The George Washington University was founded in 1821 to honor its namesake. Since then, it has become the largest university in the D.C. metropolitan area, deeply interwoven with the culture and industries of the city. GW is committed to supporting online students as they pursue their education and welcoming them to the GW academic community.

The George Washington University has developed two online cybersecurity master’s degrees as well as an online master’s degree in cloud computing management.

The online Master of Engineering in cybersecurity policy and compliance at GW is designed for students who are working professionals—blending live class sessions with coursework developed by our award-winning faculty that can be completed around other obligations. Students who are employed full-time will be able to apply the skills they learn on the job as they complete their online cybersecurity courses.

To confront increasingly complex, large-scale cyberthreats, professionals need the technical skills to identify problems early and the business knowledge to implement practical mitigation strategies. The online master’s in cybersecurity analytics explores the latest tools and techniques for intrusion detection, cyber forensics and risk assessment, plus innovative approaches like open-source intelligence analysis. This program can prepare students to start a cybersecurity career or provide experienced professionals with an edge as they counter the next wave of cyberattacks and data breaches.

Cloud computing is essential to everyday operations and long-term strategic planning in today’s increasingly data-driven organizations. The online master’s in cloud computing management develops the skills to plan investments in cloud technology, optimize deployments, apply machine learning techniques and lead migrations at any scale, including for multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments. This multidisciplinary program can benefit students from both technical and non-technical backgrounds by deepening their understanding of how cloud architecture and applications impact business decisions.

Data protection is a top priority for government agencies, private businesses, and nonprofit organizations alike. Those looking to pursue a career in cybersecurity leadership are filling a high-demand role in a rapidly changing industry. The market for careers in cybersecurity is projected to expand to $170 billion by 2020—an increase of more than 200%.

Our online graduate degree program in cybersecurity policy and compliance has no additional fees, and required textbooks and software are included in the price of tuition, which is among the most competitively priced in the nation. There are five opportunities to begin the program each year.
