Associate of Science in Cybersecurity

Join a growing career field with a Cybersecurity degree

Cyber attacks occur every 39 seconds. Gain a foundation in cyber defense and learn how to protect data and network assets. You’ll even learn about digital forensics, a necessary skill for cybercrime investigations.

Earn industry-recognized certifications

Through your coursework and some additional self-study, you can earn additional CompTIA certifications, such as A+, Network+, Linux+, Security+, and more. These certifications show employers that you’re highly skilled in your field.

Become an EC Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)

You’ll learn how to legally and ethically search for digital vulnerabilities within an organization. Penetration testing (aka ethical hacking) helps organizations protect against those vulnerabilities, and is an in-demand skill for cybersecurity professionals. These skills are built into your associate degree and prepare you for certification.
