Master Cyber Security Question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm interested in a pursuing a career in cyber security. I currently work in a non-IT job and I have a bachelor in Finance. I'm thinking of getting a master in cyber security to break into the field. Maryville University in St.Louis offers a MS Cyber Security and here are the list of courses that'd I need to take:

Required Courses (30 credits):

• ISYS 600 Controls for Effective Cyber Defense

• ISYS 670 Pen Testing

• ISYS 671 Advanced Pen Testing

• ISYS 674 Cryptography and Network Security

• ISYS 680 Mobile Device Hacking and Forensics

• ISYS 681 Designing and Implementing Cloud Security

• ISYS 684 Forensic Examination and Analysis

• ISYS 685 Incident Handling and Breaches

• ISYS 691 Legal Aspects of Privacy and Compliance

Would the classes above provide me with enough knowledge to get an entry level Security/Cyber Security job or should I just get certs like A+, Net+, Sec+ and look for help desk/IT support job first to break into the field?
