Masters in Information Assurance

Those that pursue a Masters in Information Assurance will take courses related to information security, strategic risk management, disaster recovery, government laws, business continuity, and reliability. Many companies and government agencies rely on their information remaining confidential, available, and intact. Students pursuing this Masters degree balance understanding the threats against information while also understanding business and government requirements surrounding it. Students use real-world test cases to apply the studies they undertake. When they graduate after these two years of study, many students began working in government agencies and private companies to make sure data remains secure. Some go to work for the military as a contractor doing the same thing. Aerospace and defense contractors often obtain their services in order to obtain government contracts.

Some potential students think that obtaining an online degree is much easier than going to a traditional classroom. In some ways, they are right. Students can schedule their class work around other aspects of their lives. Nevertheless, the courses are not easy just because students take them online. Students still have to study and put dedication in order to obtain a degree from an online university. Information Assurance Master's Programs online requires students to study and pass the same courses as those studied by people in traditional university.

Those who graduate with a degree often become information assurance analysts, managers, and engineers. Others move into project management and resource management positions. Some go on to obtain PhD degrees as well. Job opportunities in this area continue to grow steadily according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Right out of college, many graduates enter private industry and start making around $55,000 a year. Those that choose to pursue IT consulting can make $60,000 or more per year. With experience, salaries continue to grow and opportunities open up.
