Is it mandatory that you *need* to have a *computer science/IT* degree, or can you have a degree from other STEM related fields (like electrical/biomedical/mechanical engineering or physics/math, etc), with a good amount of knowledge acquired through certificates and self studying networking and IT security?

As a former graduate student of another STEM field (that doesn’t pertain to computer science/IT), I have the chance to do masters, and I don’t know whether I should pursue it in the same field as my bachelor’s, or in cybersecurity. I don’t know if pursuing cybersecurity for higher studies with a different bachelor’s degree would hinder my chances of finding a job, or help me get my foot in the door.

Ps: I have some experience in IT, and I will get my certificates too. I just really love the field and would love to give it a shot while life’s offering me a final chance.
