Full-Time

Graduate in 4 months with the accelerated course pace: full-time. Expect 30–40 hours per week of coursework and benefit from dedicated, full-time learning. This option requires the most commitment — you’ll attend 8 hours of live study groups per week (typically in the afternoon), complete group projects, and collaborate with others in your cohort throughout the day.

Part-Time

Graduate in 8 months at a pace that offers the same curriculum as the full-time program. Expect 15–25 hours per week of coursework and benefit from a structured, yet flexible, schedule designed to keep you on track. You’ll typically attend 6 hours of live study groups a week, typically in the evenings, and collaborate with your cohort throughout the day.

Your day at Flatiron School

You can learn online with our Cybersecurity Analytics program at a full-time (30 hours per week) or part-time pace (15 hours per week). We use a unique instructional architecture to maximize instructor interaction and lab exercises. Our lab times let you engage in hands-on learning on key topics during lecture portions of the class. Join live lectures with your instructor and meet with your cohort’s technical coach for weekly mentorship sessions. Throughout our programs, you’ll progress through longer 'foundational' courses concurrent with shorter, domain-specific topics.
