Cyber Security Major

Hot News for this Major: "Market Exploding for Cyber Security," according to the St. Louis Business Journal.

Clearly no company or government agency can afford to have a serious breach in the security of its computer network. Those who can protect computer systems and networks against hackers, spyware and viruses are currently in very high demand.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for cyber security professionals is projected to grow by 22% by 2020.

Fontbonne’s new Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security, designed by full-time faculty members in consultation with St. Louis area industry experts, will help you develop the knowledge and experience needed to earn a position as a cyber security professional within companies, institutions or government facilities. We also offer a cyber security certificate for students majoring in other areas.

Your classes will include a solid base of computer science and mathematics, as well as courses developed specifically for this major, such as Cryptography, Wireless Security, Mobile Forensics, and Server Security and Maintenance/Troubleshooting. Fontbonne’s emphasis on problem solving and communication skills will serve to make you an even more highly employable graduate.
