"It's an opportunity for prospective students to speak with and meet our dean of academics and other members of the academic team, as well as faculty members who teach in our doctoral programs," explains Meghan Young, director of admissions operations.
Capitol's graduate programs are conducted online, via a real-time "virtual classroom," and the info sessions also provide an introduction to that environment.
"It offers a chance to see what the virtual classroom looks like, and to become familiar with the various tools and capabilities of our platform," Young says.
Capitol currently offers two doctoral programs. Our DSc program in cybersecurity, established in 2010, balances a strong theoretical foundation with research and hands-on experience. It aims to prepare graduates to be leaders in the field's top organizations, including federal agencies and private companies.
In 2015, Capitol launched a PhD program in management and decision sciences, designed to prepare sensior professionals for senior positions in either the public or private sector. Through a rigorous and varied curriculum, students cultivate high-level decision science skills, and contribute to the field with innovative and practical doctoral research.
