Spring 2019 Preview highlight:
- The Fall 2019 launch of a NEW Masters program in Global Security, Conflict,
and Cybercrime (MSGSCC)
For nearly 15 years, CGA has focused on anticipating, analyzing, and forming solutions to pressing global challenges. The development of a MSGA Concentration in Transnational Security in 2008 strengthened the graduate program’s focus on transnational crime, terrorism, and security threats as they relate to global affairs. Now, technology and globalization have altered war, from cyber, to nonlinear warfare, to unmanned and autonomous weapons, to terrorists’ use of social media, encryption, and the Dark Web.

In response to the changing landscape of global security issues, Divisional Dean Vera Jelinek and Academic Director Carolyn Kissane consulted with faculty and industry insiders to develop a full
masters program examining these topics, and CGA is launching a MS in Global Security, Confict, and Cybercrime (MSGSCC) this fall after two years of curricular development and review.

In addition to their choice of concentration, MSGA students are now able to attain a “Specialization in Data Analytics.” The purpose of this specialization is to equip students with concrete data-analytic skills that will both benefit them throughout their coursework and thesis/capstone projects, as well as signal to prospective employers that a student is capable of using computer software to manage, analyze and present data.
