Program Description

Southern New Hampshire University’s 100% online Bachelor of Science (BS) in Cyber Security program provides you with the skills needed to protect businesses and organizations from cyber threats in today’s data-driven world.

Our online bachelor’s program focuses on two approaches to help you develop a “security mindset” and begin your career in cyber security:
  • Systems thinking: You’ll gain a deep understanding of how complex systems interact and influence each other.
  • Adversarial thinking: You’ll also develop a holistic view of hacker tactics and how to create effective incident response strategies.

With the mastery of these two methods, you’ll be able to make decisions under pressure and apply trusted cyber security techniques to solve problems where people, processes and technology collide.

This 100% online cyber security program’s curriculum develops your skills through hands-on learning, collaborating with your peers and learning directly from expert faculty with real-world experience in the field.
