The flagship educational experience offered by the Johns Hopkins University in the area of Information Security and Assurance is represented by the Master of Science in Security Informatics (MSSI) degree. The full-time MSSI program is an immersive, three-semester program providing educational, research and professional opportunities that are simply unparalleled in this rapidly expanding field.
- Masters students have unlimited access (open 24 hours a day, seven days a week) to a state-of-the-art laboratory designed to allow them to work individually on homework assignments or as part of project teams. All work spaces have whiteboard walls for writing out ideas.
- Graduate students with a minimum 3.0 GPA are invited to apply for work as course assistants (CAs) within the department. Payrates vary from $9.00-15.00 per hour; several head TA positions funded at $3K/course are available for experienced CAs each semester.
