The Anderson University B.S. in Cybersecurity has five program-level learning outcomes. These outcomes represent a description of what graduates will know upon completion of the Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity.
Our five learning outcomes are: To develop Cybersecurity graduates…
1. with the technical knowledge and skills needed to secure computer systems and networks.
2. that can plan, develop, and implement a cybersecurity risk management program for organizations.
3. with the sufficient red/blue team skills to attack, defend and audit information system resources.
4. that can secure, manage, and assess cloud-based information resources.
5. with the knowledge to pass an entry-level, professional cybersecurity certification exam.
Our program has other aims, and our students learn many cyber tactics, techniques and procedures that can be used to defend and protect data and computer systems. Still, these five represent our overall program outcomes or goals for our graduates.
Our learning outcomes are covered over a series of twelve Cybersecurity (CYB) courses that students take while earning the degree. These courses are listed below:
