Why earn your MS in Cybersecurity at Walden?

Pamela Quinn headshot

"I am a scientist at the national lab in Washington state, and I had been doing data analysis tasks for years. But just as I started my MISM classes, I began to take on more leadership roles on software design projects. I began applying the templates and tools from my homework assignments to work projects. The timing was perfect."

The MS in Data Science program is not currently eligible for federal financial aid. Walden University is seeking approval from the U.S. Department of Education to offer this program with federal financial aid, but at this time we cannot provide a general time frame on when any decision will be rendered.

Even though Walden University is seeking approval from the U.S. Department of Education, individuals can still fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) for the program. Walden will collect and hold all paperwork that is received until such time as we receive a decision from the U.S. Department of Education. Federal program approval is separate from individual federal financial aid eligibility. In order for a student to receive federal financial aid when a program is approved by the U.S. Department of Education, a student must meet all other federal financial aid eligibility requirements as defined in the Walden University Financial Aid Terms and Conditions and Walden University Student Handbook.
