Protect the network! Protect the data! Protect the software!
The growing field of Cybersecurity focuses on the protection and defense of systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks.
Not only will you learn and strategize how best to protect and defend, but our ‘big picture’ approach to cybersecurity will allow you to take courses not only in computer science and technology but also in the humanities and social sciences.
What sets us apart?
- Designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (Information Assurance/Cybersecurity Education) for academic years 2014-2019. This designation was awarded because the curriculum has been designed to meet the stringent academic standards of the CAE-CD program. This NSA/DHS recognition program serves as the de facto accreditation standard for Cybersecurity. The next application for UMS re-designation is scheduled for Spring 2019.
- Prepares students to take optional professional certification (e.g., ISC2 CISSP).
