Pursuing Masters in Cybersecurity with BA in sociology.

Hello all,

Hope everyone is doing well during this pandemic.

I currently work for county probation dept in CA and I have BA in sociology.

I’m considering to go to graduate school that the county has partnership with and get a master’s degree in either CS or Cybersecurity.

The background story for my career switch is that the county is offering several IT positions that require minimum BS in IT. So rather than pursuing for 2nd Bachelor’s degree, why not go for Masters since I qualify to apply for a graduate school.

But, I want to know if i should to prepare myself by self teaching some programming languages before applying for the graduate school.

I have Compti A+ and know basic python knowledge, HTML, CSS, Javascript.

And i’m hoping to have any tips or suggestions on my plan.

Thanks for any comments and stay safe.

Ps. English isn’t my first language so I ask for understanding :)



Are you able to get a copy of the program overview? Many colleges will send you a pdf of the courses involved, as well as brief descriptions and skills learned. You can use that as a reference for which languages or technologies to brush up on.
