Earn your Cybersecurity degree online

As an online student you can expect the same level of instruction as campus learners. The coursework is equally challenging, and taught by the same college faculty who you can typically interact with by phone, text, email, or online chat.


The certificate or degree that you receive will be the exact same as those granted to campus learners and will not reflect that you obtained your education online.

Careers in Cybersecurity
A degree in cybersecurity gives students the business management and technical skills for a successful career in information security. Students will learn the fundamentals of networks security, IT law, and proactive strategies for ensuring data protection. Data breaches are a very expensive problem for all types of businesses and the “cybersecurity talent shortage” continues to be a problem according to Burning Glass Technologies job tracking data. Career options include security engineer, cloud security engineer, and security analyst.
