The Associate of Science in Cyber Security equips students with the required technical skills and provides an introduction to security principles following the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) standardized path.

Further program areas pull from computer science (CSC), computer information technology (CIT), and information systems management (ISM).
