(Courtesy of Touro University) Touro University Graduate School of Technology (GST) has launched four new master of science degree programs, designed to provide graduates with the most up-to-date knowledge and help them develop cutting-edge skills needed to build rewarding careers in tech. The programs are cybersecurity and network administration, web and application development, technology leadership/project management, and business intelligence and database systems.
“The master’s degree is a great way to open doors for career opportunities, with many tech jobs expected to grow at a rate nearly 35% over the next 10 years,” said Dr. Issac Herskowitz, dean of the Touro University Graduate School of Technology.
The new master’s programs at Touro GST allow students to specialize in an area of interest, but all four degrees share core requirements, allowing for flexibility.
The master of science in cybersecurity and network administration program will guide students through the rapidly evolving world of network security, and teach them the fundamentals of network administration, making it easier for students to break into the field and secure entry-level jobs. Companies rarely hire someone straight out of school for cybersecurity jobs, but graduates of this program can start out in an IT support role, gain some experience, and then move into cybersecurity.
The master of science in web and application development program gives students the skills to break into the software development field, preparing them to write code, create algorithms, and handle design and implementation for software, websites, mobile apps and other digital products.
All four programs can be taken online or in-person, with evening classes so that students can earn their degrees without giving up their current jobs. “Touro University is career-changer friendly, and we offer foundational courses most students with little or no tech background can complete in one semester to bring them up to speed so they can earn their master’s degree,” said Dr. Herskowitz.
The new master’s programs at Touro GST allow students to specialize in an area of interest while providing them with the knowledge and skills they need to build successful careers in technology. Graduates of these programs will have the opportunity to work in high-demand job roles and earn competitive salaries.
