The field of cybersecurity is one of increasing importance to governments and enterprises around the world. Demand for individuals with expertise in this area will continue to grow as society’s dependence on information systems grows and society’s enemies become ever more adept at bypassing information security measures. A few positions graduates of this program can consider include:
"My original major when I enrolled at Augusta University was Sociology with a minor in Psychology. I was enrolled in Dr. Paul York's Introduction to Programming course and told us about a Cyber Security Summit in town. Upon attending the summit and listening to the summit speakers talk about the cyber security workforce needs, I realized this was a field I could be good in and decided to change my major. I ultimately decided to pursue the Information Technology degree with a focus in Cyber Security program. In this particular program, there were fewer math courses to take and allowed for more of a focus in cyber security-specific courses which I loved. One piece of advice I would pass along to incoming cyber security students is there is no reason you shouldn't be able to pass the Security+ certification test. Be sure to pay attention in your classes!"
