- Mercy College's 15-credit residency requirement in the major concentrations of cyber security must be satisfied by courses numbered 200 or above.
- Cybersecurity majors who have not had their mathematics core requirement waived should complete MATH 116 and MATH 201 (rather than MATH 115) as part of their General Education Requirement, hence can take MATH 244 in sequence. Students should contact their faculty advisors or department chair before taking MATH 115.
- CISC 120 is a prerequisite for introductory courses but may be waived if students pass the waiver exam.
- Some courses are offered once a year. Please check with the department for the current course offering schedule.
- Undergraduate students may take a maximum of two graduate-level courses (other than IASP 585) to fulfil the major elective requirement.
- Students in B.S. program can apply for B.S. + M.S. dual degree during their junior or senior year.
To get the benefit of a dual degree, students should use their open electives to take as many graduates courses as possible. Students in the dual degree program may apply a maximum of twelve credits taken at the graduate level (other than IASP 585) to fulfil the requirements of their undergraduate degree.
* These courses fulfil part of the General Education requirements. The total of major concentration is 16 courses or 48 credits.
** This course can be transferred into if students have current security + certificate.
Students can choose to have a minor in cybersecurity. We suggest students consider taking the following among the five necessary courses: IASP 230, IASP 330 and IASP 420.
