JULY 1, 2020 — UTSA’s College of Business is offering a new graduate certificate in cybersecurity. This 12-hour program is designed to give noncyber professionals the knowledge and technical skills needed to deal with cybersecurity issues that impact a wide variety of fields.
Offered by the college’s Department of Information Systems and Cyber Security, this certificate program will provide a common framework for understanding cybersecurity as well as allow for specialization in specific areas, such as law, policy, analysis, response, etc.
“Cybersecurity impacts society and businesses across a variety of disciplines,” said Nicole Beebe, chair of the Department of Information Systems and Cyber Security. “Given our national reputation in this field, the College of Business offers prospective students a high-quality introduction to topics that are vital in this industry.”
All students will complete a course in telecommunications, then select three electives from classes in information assurance and security, intrusion detection and incident response, cyber law, information assurance policy, web application security, digital forensic analysis and industrial control system security.
The certificate program is open to current UTSA graduate students, alumni and business community members.
“The certificate is specifically designed for noncyber majors and people without a cyber background,” Beebe said. “We are seeking to help professionals in other fields better navigate the cyber implications of their particular field.”
The College of Business offers seven graduate certificate programs designed to increase a student’s marketability across a variety of fields. For working professionals, certificate programs allow individuals to receive specialized training in a timely manner—which could fast-track career aspirations.
