So, I have been in the IT field for about 5 years now and I really want to go into cyber security or CF. I have been looking at the masters degrees and certificates offered through different colleges and would like to get a masters but they run anywhere from $24k to $34k. I found a 27 credit hour certificate offered through Champlain College, which seems like a well accredited college. It would cost $15K, which is half the price of the masters and you take pretty much the same courses and credit hours. I do have my Security + certification and studying for my Network +. Any thoughts from anyone would be great.

My first thought is "Decide which you want to do, Cyber Security or CF". Even though they overlap a little, they are definately two different fields. I definately wouldn't resign from an existing position at this time to pursue either, since IT jobs are getting more scarce by the minute.
