New master’s degree programs offered at NEIT

Posted

The New England Institute of Technology (NEIT) will offer two new Master of Science degree programs in October. Perfect for working professionals, the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) is a part-time, online/hybrid program for registered nurses (RN) seeking to become effective leaders in the healthcare industry. Students may choose between one of two specialty tracks: Educational Leadership (50 quarter credit hours) or Family Nurse Practitioner (66 quarter credit hours).

The Education Leadership track prepares RNs to teach in an academic or clinical-practice setting. Utilizing predominantly online coursework, this track focuses on educational foundations, instructional methods, curriculum development and educational leadership. Applicants must have an unencumbered United States license as a Registered Nurse, be a graduate of an accredited baccalaureate degree program with a 3.0 overall GPA and have at least one year of clinical experience as an RN within the past two years.

In addition, NEIT will offer a specialized Master of Science in Cybersecurity Defense (MSCD) program since cybersecurity has become one of the most critical Information Technology (IT) functions worldwide. This program seeks to prepare IT professionals to be workplace and community leaders in cybersecurity, to identify and assess cybersecurity vulnerabilities, develop plans to address those vulnerabilities and to implement, monitor and respond utilizing the plans.

The MSCD curriculum is based on the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Project Management Professional (PMP) certification knowledge areas. The program blends technical knowledge and essential cybersecurity skills with business management and enterprise leadership principles. This degree can be completed entirely online or as a hybrid program.

 Applicants will have a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science, information technology or a related field, or have considerable professional information technology experience. Graduates of the program may pursue careers as a Chief Information Officer, Chief Information Security Officer, Chief Technical Officer or Director of Software Security Engineering to name a few.
