Get the certification you need to advance in your career

Enhance your IT career and opportunities for advancement with a certificate in cybersecurity that ensures you have the essential skills and knowledge to protect your systems from emerging threats.

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers two certificates in cybersecurity, both of which can be earned in 12 credit hours with day OR evening classes. Our Level 1 certificate is designed for persons with two or more years of experience in the IT field with little or no experience in cybersecurity.  The Level 2 certificate is designed for persons with two or more years of experience in the IT field with some experience in cybersecurity.

These certificates can help technology professionals enhance their expertise and marketability without the time and expense of adding a full degree. As cybersecurity demands increase, so too do the demands for professionals with education and knowledge in the field. A cybersecurity 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 cybersecurity minor or a Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity.
