Cybersecurity has become a major growth area at Fletcher, both in terms of student interest and offerings at the School. In recent years, several new cyber-focused courses have been added to the curriculum, Fletcher teams have become regulars at the Atlantic Council’s annual Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge, and Professor Susan Landau was named the inaugural bridge professor in Cyber Security and Policy between Fletcher and the Tufts School of Engineering. This year sees Assistant Professor of Cybersecurity Policy Josephine Wolff join the faculty. In something of a culmination of these cyber-trends, in the 2020-2021 academic year we will begin to matriculate students in the new M.S. in Cybersecurity and Public Policy degree, a program offered jointly by Fletcher and the Department of Computer Science in the School of Engineering. Students will take courses both at Fletcher and the School of Engineering, and will be grounded in both technology and policy issues such as digital approaches to development, communications technology law, digital sovereignty, surveillance and privacy, and many more. Interested candidates should apply through the School of Engineering, but can feel free to contact either school with questions about the new program.
