Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is on the right board but wasn't sure where else to put it. I finished my bachelor’s degree last year in network communications and management. I've wanted to pursue IT security or cyber security for a few years, my goal is government work. I've spent the last few weeks researching masters programs in cyber security but am having the hardest time finding anything that has consistently good reviews. I'm a bit frustrated and was hoping to get some information on personal experience from anyone that has gone through a cyber security program or recommendations. My searches have brought up schools like Capella, university of phoenix, James Madison, Virginia College, utica college, umuc. Some of these schools look great, but again, the reviews have been bad.
I'm not sure if this is the right path to go down or not. Would you recommend a master’s program in cyber security or the cert route? Unfortunately, I don't have any certs yet. I've been in IT for 3 years. Just kind of did my studying and never took the exams.
Any advice or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated.
