Cybersecurity is a growing field with opportunities across all industries, agencies, and organizations that seek to protect the nation's information systems. UVU has created a new Cybersecurity Career Pathways program built upon existing Information Systems and Technology and related programs at the university. The program features five stackable tracks with varying employment level goals in mind (stackability depends upon a student's desired education and career choices).


Which track is right for you?

I already have a Bachelor's Degree and want to increase my cybersecurity expertise.

Master of Science in Cybersecurity

I am working on my Bachelor's Degree.

BS in Information Technology or Information Systems

UVU's ABET accredited Bachelor of Science programs in Information Technology and Information Systems both have emphases perfect for those interested in cybersecurity.

The Information Technology emphasis in Network Administration and Security includes cybersecurity focused courses along with the networking and system administration courses essential for any IT professional.

The Information Systems emphasis in Information Security Management includes important cybersecurity courses for the student focused on enabling business with technology. From web application security to information security analytics, the IS courses provide deep insight on how cybersecurity affects businesses.

I am just starting college.

Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Information Systems and Technology

UVU's AAS program provides the essential coursework and knowledge to provide a strong foundation upon which to build your cybersecurity education. Coursework includes topics such as network administration, linux, and information security. 

I want to start working in technology as soon as possible. 

Certificate of Proficiency in Information Technology

Certificate of Completion in Network Administration

These entry-level certificates are perfect for those who wish to have a credential to put on their résumé as quickly as possible. While they aren't specifically focused on cybersecurity, they provide foundational knowledge necessary for success in a variety of technology fields. Even better, the courses lead directly into and can be applied to the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Information Systems and Technology program.
