The best online College for Information Security?


Hello to my Linux community,

I'm wanting to go back to college for information security and go all the way up to an accredited Masters degree. Due to my work schedule, I can only go to school online. What are some of the best accredited schools online for this? I know you can google this information, but with every school placing themselves at the top of search engines, it's hard to tell who is feeding you chocolate coated roaches and who is giving you valuable knowledge. I would love to hear from some of you who have been there and done it.

Thank you all,

Tsai

Examine the degree program very carefully, especially if you are looking at a for-profit private school. Study the information-security business very carefully before spending money to enter. You could easily wind up spending "all the way up to a master's degree" and find that you didn't get your money's worth at all. Caveat student, that's all.

Right, I'm well aware that's why I'm trying to get the best advice before sinking into more debt with school. I want to make sure that it's a really good accredited one that employers will honor.

Thanks
