Cybersecurity Graduate Certificate

Cybersecurity has been identified by Governor Nathan Deal's High Demand Career Initiative working group as a crucial field for businesses in Georgia. The Mike Cottrell College of Business and the University of North Georgia now offer a graduate certificate in cybersecurity. This new graduate certificate is a 10-credit summer graduate program in computer, network and information security with electives in secure software development and computer forensics. The college's new programs aim to address the growing workforce demand as an additional 1.5 million cybersecurity professionals are needed by 2020 nationwide.

The program is slated to begin summer 2018 and is designed for working IT professionals and recent graduates who want to deepen their expertise and skills in the critical field of cybersecurity.

The University of North Georgia is designated as an NSA/DHS National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE) and the computer science degree program has offered an undergraduate concentration in information assurance and security since 2004 as well as a minor in cybersecurity in collaboration with the Department of Criminal Justice.

In addition to a graduate certificate featuring the seals of the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security, students will be able to apply the graduate credit as electives towards the Mike Cottrell College of Business's Cottrell MBA.

Students may begin planning to apply beginning in fall 2017.
