The Cybercrime Investigation & Cybersecurity program at MET is a close-knit group of students and professors. Whatever your interests are, the professors will work together to get you on the right path. Your classmates are correction officers, Boston Police officers, domestic violence counselors, parole officers, and international federal agents; getting to work closely with them has been an invaluable experience and left me with a robust network of peers in the field.“

Why did you choose MET for your graduate studies? What set MET apart from other programs you were considering?
No other program in the northeast allows you to combine traditional criminal justice studies with the modern cybercrime and cybersecurity concepts that are being used in the field today. I was able to get hands-on experience with the digital forensic tools that are being used today by police and federal law enforcement throughout the country. That dual structure, allowing me a foundation in criminal justice as well as the chance to apply those traditional concepts to the up-and-coming field of cybersecurity, really stood out to me.
