In this paper, we describe the content and rationale of a comprehensive information security program encompassing degree options at the B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. levels established at Gjøvik University College, Norway. While the individual programs are open for students meeting certain formal prerequisites at each level, the sequence of degree programs is also designed in such a way as to allow students to progress from B.Sc. to Ph.D. levels without undue overlap or repetition. This is accomplished by placing different emphases on the teaching and learning tools and techniques used, moving on to higher levels in Bloom's hierarchy in the process. At the same time, the different degrees also take into account the career progression and concomitant changes in the needs of students. We describe these considerations along with a brief description of courses offered at each level, along with a description of the learning environments at each level.
