  5. The requirements for the degrees in cybersecurity have been maintained to be current.
    For The graduation requirement currently required for graduation is a uniform,
    a single tack, in the three options.
    The requirement for the MS degree is 30 credit hours. The first option is those 30 credit hours only by taking courses. The second option is to conduct three credit hours of research project with at least 27 credit hours of coursework. The third option is to write a thesis with at least 24 credit hours of coursework.
    With the same options, the newly proposed is two tracks of graduation expertise: technical professionalism and leadership. The professionalism track will focus solely on technical course works, while the leadership track takes both technical and legal issues into consideration.
