Cyber Security Certificate Program

 

 


The Graduate Certificate in Cybersecurity offered through the College of Business and Information Technology provides you with a comprehensive knowledge of cybersecurity. 

You may work toward the graduate certificate independently, or pursue it as part of either of the college’s two master’s degree programs – Master of Business Administration or Master of Science in Information Technology – by applying to both programs simultaneously. To successfully complete the graduate certificate in cybersecurity, you must take 15 credit hours from the courses listed in the course curriculum – excluding foundation course INT 6043 – and achieve a GPA of 3.0 or better.

This 15 credit certificate can be completed 100% online. Courses are also offered on campus.
