Graduate Certificate

To be a leader in cybersecurity requires more than just technical knowledge—it also requires a deeper understanding of the cyber challenges surrounding law, policy, regulations, and ethics. That is why we are offering a Graduate Certificate in Cybersecurity, Policy, and Law from three nationally recognized schools within the University of Pittsburgh: the School of Computing and Information, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, and School of Law.

Cybersecurity is a multidisciplinary domain that involves technical issues, security policies, regulation, and law.  Our integrated curriculum provides students with the skills to develop comprehensive cybersecurity policies and strengthen cybersecurity ecosystems to minimize risk. 

As part of the certificate’s multidisciplinary approach, the certificate requires courses to be taken from all three Pitt schools. Students must complete a minimum of three courses from SCI, one course from GSPIA, and one course from the School of Law to earn the certificate.
