In the master's degree program, students are required to conduct independent research and publish their findings in 15-20 page research papers. Students then present their work to the community at both live SANS events and online via webcasts.
Students must schedule their first presentation at a live SANS event. With approval from faculty, students may elect to give their second presentation in a webcast.
Presentation requests must be submitted 90 days prior to desired presentation date. To begin the approval process, please submit the request form found here.
