Student and Alumni Success
The University of Fairfax doctorate program in Cybersecurity is exceeding my expectations. As a retired Air Force veteran and someone who has been working in security over 35 years, getting my master’s in cybersecurity was a completion of a long career and educational goal I completed before coming to UoF, however, getting a doctorate was also a long-time goal I never considered possible until coming across the University of Fairfax program. This will help reach my final goal of teaching classes one day to help shape future cybersecurity practitioners.
I researched all the schools that offered on-line programs over several months looking for the right fit for my work and home life. I searched for a program that was challenging, rewarding, and aligned with my professional goal and personal life commitments, UoF met the requirements.
The classes, professors, enrollment staff, and counselors have been outstanding in every aspect and all have exceeded my expectations. I spend several hours each day studying in evenings and about 30 hours on weekends as well and have also found the content is relevant to my job and the corporate America. The on-line face-to-face meetings work well being able to see your professor and classmates providing an experience as if being in the classroom.
