Cyber Security Certificate
NEW: Can be completed with day OR evening classes in only 12 hours!
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers two certificates in cyber security, both of which can be earned in 12 credit hours. Our Level 1 certificate is for IT professionals with absolutely no background in data or computer security, while our Level 2 certificate is designed for IT professionals with some security background.
These certificates can help technology professionals enhance their expertise and marketability without the time and expense of adding a full degree. As cyber security demands increase, so too do the demands for professionals with education and knowledge in the field. A cyber security certificate could put you a step ahead of the competition in a wide range of sectors, from government and military to business and healthcare. If you want to expand your knowledge even further, consider a cyber security minor or a Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security.
