I just finished the MS:ISA degree at WGU. I know there have been several people asking questions about it, and I'd be happy to answer any you have in this thread.

1) Is the program NSA-CAE certified yet? If so, since when? If not, why not? ( I know this question is probably better answered by the WGU admin folks, but they've not said anything about it for a while).
2) How did you structure your program? Any advice on the classes? What were the Performance Assessments like?
3) Did the program meet your career and/or academic expectations? Where to next?

Thanks for being opening your thread to questions. I'll put a link to this thread in the WGU Questions and Answer's thread.
Do you feel that MS program deepened your knowledge of INFOSEC? Also, out of curiosity, what was the subject of your capstone paper?

Congrats on completing! Just curious. When did you start and how long did it takes you? If you don't want to share with us then that's okay. I totally understand. The most important thing is that you finish it

Would you say the papers were about the same difficulty as with your bachelor's? Say along the lines of LET1.

Foxer, I hope you are still answering about your experiences. Your contribution to this forum is invaluable to potential WGU students.
How are you doing in the job market? Did the WGU IA Degree play an important role? How did employers greet the WGU degree?
(I start the IA program soon, so I am keenly interested in your successes and bumps along the road.)

Today was my very first day of the Master's course, and I think one positive I can immediately see is that you can view the courses even before you start them, so you can have an idea of what's in those courses, which can help you decide which ones you want to do, in what order. (I think I'll do the recommended order, though.)
The only thing I'm slightly at odds about is writing the papers, as I haven't written a paper since October 2010, and I'm right now trying to think about what my Capstone would be about, so that I can have that mostly ready by the time it rolls around to start submitting it at the end. No worries about any oral defense portions, as I know what I'm talking about, LOL, just don't want to do a poor job on the paper, especially since it's the key to completing the degree AND future students will see what you did on it.

Where will future students see your capstone? I have seen a couple in the student portal, but I thought they were just examples (and I am pretty sure they gave explicit permission for it to be posted there.)

How was the oral part of the Capstone course? What's it like?
nhpr wrote: »
How much time did the masters program take versus your undergrad program? When comparing please mention how much transfer credit you had for each (since that's kind of important as well).
Also, you haven't explicitly mentioned whether or not you'd recommend the program to others. Did you think that the overall experience was a good one?

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I found this thread while searching for Ideas for my Capstone project. I have a question for anyone who has completed the MSISA at WGU. What was the basis of your capstone. Trying to get in the right state of mind since I am so close.
