“Immaculata University currently offers a robust Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity. Based upon market need, we are expanding the offering in cybersecurity to include an associate degree. Our associate degree programs have proven to be popular for students wanting to delve into an academic field or expand their career options,” states Angela Tekely, Ed.D., vice president for academic affairs and provost. “These new associate degrees prepare students for in-demand careers or to continue their education.”

By researching the latest cybersecurity trends regarding threats and countermeasures, students in the A.S. in cybersecurity program will explore global threats; understand best practices to prevent and safeguard organizations; create policies to improve cybersecurity; and identify how technology affects cybersecurity. In addition, content will also focus on legal and ethical concepts within the industry. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects cybersecurity analyst jobs to increase 31% through 2029, which is more than seven times the average projected employment growth for all occupations.
