Dual Degree in SI and REEI

This dual degree combines the Masters in Secure Computing and the Master of Arts in Russian and East European Studies, offered by IU’s Russian and East European Institute. The program is a response to the growing need for computer security personnel with domain knowledge in Russia and Eastern Europe. 

You’ll also earn two degrees in fewer credit hours—and less time—than it would take to earn them separately.

How to Apply

You must apply for admission to—and meet the admission requirements for—both programs. See our program’s information for Computer Science Admissions.

Requirements (Minimum of 54 Credit Hours)

M.S. Requirements (Minimum of 30 Credit Hours)

  • Required Secure Computing Core Courses (12 cr.)
  • Applied Security Requirement (6 cr.)
  • Computing and Network Foundations Electives (9 cr.) 
  • Electives and/or Concentrations (3 cr.)

Requirement details are availaible on the Security M.S.  page.

M.A. Requirements (24 cr.)

The Russian and East European Institute provides information about the M.A. requirements.


You will graduate after you finish both degrees—the degrees must be awarded simultaneously.

Tuition Rates

Different Indiana University schools charge different graduate tuition rates. For dual degrees, you will be coded in one of the two schools and pay that school’s tuition rate. To switch to the other school’s tuition rate, contact that department’s recorder as you near the halfway point in your program.
