(sorry if this is a dupe, had mail probs)
There is also Charles Sturt University out of Australia. (Although they do
the whole thing via distance education.). I thought I'd let you know what
was out there. They have two Masters of Information Technology Security
degrees. One is focused on a management area and the other on development.
The main drawing point for them is that 5 of the 12 courses you take, are
the Microsoft Curriculum courses to obtain an MCSE, or MCSD. So essentially
1/2 the course is obtaining one of these certifications. If you have a
current one, or choose to just take the exams on your own, you can knock off
1/2 the course.
I'm not a big fan of this system, you don't learn a whole lot that you can't
get from reading self-study guides. But, you get a Masters with "Security"
in the title and an MCSE/MCSD to boot.
If you're still interested http://www.csu.edu.au/
You may find that there are several other Universities that offer their
regular degrees through distance education. I am doing a Masters in
Computer Science by Research (Masters Thesis). This way, I can tailor my
Masters to security. My Thesis is on attack patterns/models and threat
modelling. It counts.
Just something to think about.

How about norwich degree being pretty much a online course... doesn't it
lose a little credit the fact of not actually going to class and talk face
to face to professors?
I don't mean to talk bad about it, I'm just wondering, since Norwich master
degree is still one of my options for a master in security assurance.
