Abstract: Privacy workforce development is a growing need as organizations struggle to find qualified privacy professionals such as Data Protection Officers and privacy engineers. Little has been written about the availability of formal privacy education opportunities that could satisfy this demand. This study inventoried the current state of formal privacy education at institutions of higher education. The inventory included information on 115 privacy programs and 333 privacy courses offered at 99 institutions around the world. Analysis revealed that privacy education is dominated by legal and compliance curricula at the graduate level, with other data privacy opportunities available in smaller quantities.
