Why Choose Saint Rose for an Undergraduate Degree in Cybersecurity?
Have you always loved computers and kind of like the idea of fighting crime, too? As reports of personal information being stolen from major corporations dominate the news, cybersecurity has become an in-demand career field.
In 2016, there were approximately 314,000 cybersecurity jobs unfilled in the U.S. and even more worldwide, according to the Cyber Seek project.
Because cybersecurity is in-demand in any corner of the world, you’ll have your pick of where you decide to work and live, whether it’s in New York City or the other side of the globe.
With average annual salaries in the field of $116,000, or $55.77 per hour, you can combine the rewards of helping protect national security with a paycheck you can be proud of.
Unlike other cybersecurity programs, this degree program at The College of Saint Rose is strictly focused on cybersecurity, with a strong foundation in computer science, criminal justice, and business.
Rounding out your degree are interesting courses in psychology and mathematics — you don’t have to be a math whiz for this degree, but you should have basic knowledge of the subject. Research and writing also play an important role.
So, if you love computers and consider yourself to be a well-rounded student, this program is the right fit for you.
Our small class sizes are no more than 20 students in each course, creating the ideal way to learn the necessary skills.
And at The College of Saint Rose, one of our strengths is helping students develop those “soft skills” that are highly sought after in the business and technology worlds. Meaning, you will leave us knowing how to communicate your ideas, work well in a team, and operate in diverse office settings.
