Cybersecurity (B.S.)

There has never been a better time to pursue a career in cybersecurity.


Cyber crime is on the rise, with as many as 200 data records compromised every second of every day worldwide. Despite the growing need to fight these crimes, job openings in the cybersecurity sector outnumber qualified cybersecurity experts. USC Upstateā€™s program positions graduates to gain employment in the rapidly evolving world of data security and information assurance.

This program will be technical and hands-on in nature, requiring many of the same courses taken by students in our ABET-accredited B.S. in Computer Science degree. The curriculum will also provide students with the content needed to sit for a number of industry certification exams (such as CompTIA (Network+ and Security+), Certified Ethical Hacker, Certified Cloud Security Professional, and CISSP [after the requisite five years of work experience])
