Securing the Cyber Landscape

There is no denying the pervasive role that technology plays in our world. With more information being accessed, saved, and shared online than ever before, the vast potential for cyber crime is not only a serious issue for individuals and businesses — it’s an acute and growing national security threat.

Norwich University's Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security program is an online degree completion program for working adults in the information technology field who want to further their careers by developing specialized skills in the high-need area of network security. Students can customize their degree by choosing a concentration in computer forensics and vulnerability management or information warfare and security management.

The cyber security curriculum balances general education and core cyber security courses (many of which can be fulfilled through transfer credits) with elective and project-based courses that allow students to delve into sub-areas such as national security policy, offensive and defensive information warfare, penetration testing, and malware forensics. All courses are designed to hone foundational skills in critical thinking, research and analysis, ethical decision-making, and oral and written communications.
