New cybersecurity minor, certificates

Data breaches at big-name businesses have become headline news in recent years. To help build the growing field of cybersecurity — a field with a shortage of experts — S&T now offers a minor in cybersecurity and information assurance for bachelor’s students in business and management systems and information science and technology.

The minor requires 15 hours of coursework, covering current information management approaches to application and software security, data networks, mobile technology, digital commerce, privacy laws and the human elements involved. The graduate certificate requires 12 hours of coursework on similar topics.

S&T also offers a graduate certificate in cybersecurity for its MBA program and its master’s degree program in information science and technology.

Missouri S&T is accredited by the U.S. National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance and Cyber-Defense Research.
