No company or government agency can afford to have a serious breach in the security of its computer network, and cyber security professionals, who protect computer systems and networks against hackers, spyware and viruses, are currently in high demand. With a Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security from Fontbonne University, designed by full-time faculty members in consultation with industry experts, you’ll have the knowledge and experience to earn a position as a cyber security professional within companies, institutions and government facilities.
“Because of the critical importance of cyber security in today's world, Fontbonne had to develop a program that truly helped students understand the computer science behind cyber threats,” said Yi Yang, Fontbonne's cyber security program director, who holds a doctorate in computer science and engineering from Penn State. “Our program will teach students to examine the weaknesses associated with database systems, web applications and operating systems, how to find them, and how to recover data corrupted when systems are compromised. Our graduates will be qualified to analyze, plan and implement security strategies to safeguard organizations and data.”
Within this full-time degree program, students will take a foundation of mathematics and computer science courses, as well as a series of courses developed specifically for the cyber security program, including Network and Security Management, Wireless Communications and Mobile Forensics, and Computer Forensics.
