Academic Life

The Center for Cybersecurity is a university-wide hub for interdisciplinary academic work on cybersecurity. CCS faculty members teach courses across the university in all aspects of cybersecurity, complementing CCS’s broad, collaborative, research agenda. CCS fellows—advanced cybersecurity practitioners with deep expertise in the field—participate in both public discussions and academic workshops for students and faculty to bolster NYU’s role as a hub for cybersecurity.

The Center for Cybersecurity has recently launched an executive master’s degree program in Cybersecurity Risk and Strategy. Offered jointly by NYU School of Law and NYU Tandon School of Engineering, the one-year program will not simply confer a new degree, but a new category of degree—one built around the interdisciplinary training and perspective needed to address a new category of cybersecurity threat. Learn more about this innovative degree and apply for the inaugural class.

CCS also runs several scholarship programs for current NYU students. Learn more about each program below.
