Should I go for my BA or MS in Cyber Security?

I am currently an active duty Navy IT. Currently involved in my command’s cyber security team. Before I enlisted in the Navy I had a BA in History which I never did anything with it. I want to progress my career and am motivated to transition to the civilian world when my contract ends in 2024. I have looked into WGU and plan on using my TA to pay for schooling and I was wondering what path would be more beneficial; going the BA or MS route. Currently my only certification is SEC+

MS gives you a backup option of teaching and won’t hurt you getting a sit down interview. It’s no guarantee of employment though. WGU might be different, but school is the LONGEST path towards working. If your achieving multiple goals while doing the school thing… why not?
