Where to begin.... My advice is to avoid the UMGC cybersecurity technology masters program at all costs - unless you enjoy being in a management position and not knowing how to do your job (which is unfortunately true of many cyber leaders - they love policy, but have no idea how to implement the deeds they preach)! Five of the six courses in the cybersecurity technology program are 100% policy based, meaning that the bulk of your assignments are based on writing cyber policy with regards to, or... Read More

I got an immense education from my efforts invested in the University of Maryland University College Cybersecurity program. The availability of this online course made a Masters possible. The quality of the instructors ranged from a one mediocre (but growing and learning), one good, two very good, and two excellent. All cared a great deal. Already a decent writer, my writing improved tremendously. My understanding of Cybersecurity issues also grew, especially coming from a generalist background with... Read More

If you are looking for easy classes where you do a bit of writing and get an A, this is it! if you are looking to learn, not so much. You will be placed in a class with a few really bright, determined people and more than a few slackers who do the bare minimum and somehow manage to get up to the next class. I really do not know how badly you have to do to not advance but it must be basically not turning any work in. Group projects are a complete joke. There is always one (or two!) person who contributes... Read More

If I had to do it again, I would definitely choose another school. I received my Masters in Cyber Security in May 2018 and all we did was write papers. There was very little hands on technical teaching which in today's world is what employers are looking for and a lot of beginning students desire. What UMUC should be teaching is technical skills, especially being in the DMV area. I wouldnt recommend this school if you want hands on technical experience as its nonexistent in the Masters of Cyber Security... Read More

I recently graduated with my Masters in Cybersecurity, and I can genuinely say that UMUC is an exceptional school. For those people that have this school at 1 star, you have to ask yourself, "Are you putting in the effort?" UMUC is one of the top online schools for military and civilian alike. I have at least four offers from my Masters and oh, by the way, I'm still on active duty until next year when I retire. Right now I'm working on my dual master's program (MBA), and it's very tough and challenging.... Read More

I love UMUC and do not regret enrolling in the course. The professors I've had so far have all been really knowledgeable and helpful during my time of struggle. The enrollment process was simple and quick. Financial aid has been really easy to apply for a disbursement dates have been on time. I haven't had any issues thus far and I look forward to completing my program.

I see some writing terrible reviews of the University of Maryland University College. What they are attesting to (sparse rants really) has not been my experience at UMUC. I think that UMUC is an excellent school and many of their programs are written with industry employers input. In other words, employers are more interested in you if you possess a degree from UMUC over other schools that do not have this relationship. In class, you will often notice students with hurt feelings in that they thought... Read More
