Program Description

The Graduate Certificate in Cybersecurity at Utah Valley University is a post-baccalaureate program for students who wish to complete advanced studies in the field of cybersecurity. This program is designed to provide students with advanced technical and managerial knowledge of cybersecurity, preparing them for senior technical and leadership roles in the field. Coursework includes a balanced approach, combining critical analysis of cybersecurity theory with hands-on education for essential applied cybersecurity techniques and tools. 

The program takes two semesters to complete the 18 credits of graduate-level courses. The curriculum includes cybersecurity operations, advanced network defense, cybersecurity management, case studies, secure coding, ethical hacking, and the legal and privacy implications of cybersecurity.

 To be successful, students should have a strong background in technology. Students should have completed undergraduate work in a related field or have applicable work experience. For those who do not meet this requirement, select undergraduate courses are available to provide the foundational knowledge needed. Please contact the academic advisor for more information.

Admission Requirements

Potential students must apply for admission into the program. To be accepted, students must have completed a Bachelor’s degree, preferably in Information Systems, Information Security, Information Technology, or Computer Science. However, applicants who have a Bachelor’s degree in another field may be admitted to the program if they also have at least two years of IT or cybersecurity industry experience and have completed undergraduate courses in data communication, programming, and servers.
