Online Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity
and Information Assurance

Safeguard society's vital information

Utica College is one of the few colleges in the United States to offer a cutting-edge Cybersecurity degree online and at the undergraduate level.

Cybercrime is increasing: In early 2010, several major technology and financial companies faced major attacks by hackers. Statistics show that such crimes—including cyber terrorism and cyber espionage—are on the rise.

Clearly, cybersecurity grows more vital with every passing day. Professionals charged with the protection of computer systems and online data have to keep up with increasingly advanced technology and ever-changing attack and infiltration techniques.

Utica College's online BS in Cybersecurity and Information Assurance was developed in connection with the college's respected Center for Identity Management and Information Protection. You'll learn innovative approaches and best practices culled from federal agencies and well known multi-national corporations and organizations, such as the FBI, US Secret Service, US Marshals, TransUnion, and Northrop Grumman.
