The program will provide students with the fundamental knowledge of computer science that forms the technical foundation of the field, with an essential focus on experiential learning through laboratory exercises in the security-related courses, as well as through the co-op program. The program’s holistic view of cybersecurity gives it a strong interdisciplinary focus, teaching students how social behavior, policy, and legal rules can affect cybersecurity as well as the tools of information technology.

Here’s what people have to say about the BS in Cybersecurity program:
