Earn a bachelor of science in cybersecurity, help protect America’s vital data assets

When you hear the word ‘hacker’, you might think of credit card breaches and email scams. Those working in the cybersecurity field, however, know the ramifications from hackers can be extremely destructive and even catastrophic for certain industries and government agencies.

Our bachelor’s degree in cybersecurity program blends scientific theory with a hands-on approach to offensive cyber security, which you’ll learn in the university’s state-of-the art labs. Classes for juniors and seniors are offered online since many students receive job offers before they complete their degree.
