I am thinking about going into computer science with the hopes of getting a masters in cyber security. I see that in the curriculum, Calculus is required for a B.S. in computer science. My question is, will I ever really have to use calculus if i enter in to the field of cyber security?

I think the only honestly truthful answer you will get is "it depends"

If you go into circuitry, time delays, and such (More of an electrical engineering side) Then yes its probably likely. If you go into algorithmns and programming or physics models its possible you will run into it. Calculus isn't hard though, if you have issues learning the stuff checkout khan academy. I found learning calculus to be pretty helpful for build up my problem solving abilities, and definitely for improving my algorithmns.
