Philosophy BA / Cybersecurity MS

Career and Academic Opportunities

The pairing should allow Philosophy/MAPW graduates to find employment in a variety of fields, including publishing, education, business, nonprofits, the arts and public service. Philosophy majors completing the program will bring expertise to writing in additional contexts, including those involving ethics and non-Western thought. With the more recent addition of classes in screenwriting, social media, and web content, MAPW graduates are advancing in the new demand fields, as well.
