The B.S. provides students with both technical and policy expertise in a rapidly expanding field, one in which there is high demand for skilled professionals. Through pursuing this degree, students will gain a sophisticated understanding of programming, data structures, networked systems, and security protocols. They will also learn about the wide range of privacy, cultural, economic, legal, and security issues surrounding the field of cybersecurity. They will learn to assess risk, explore possible responses to cyber attacks, and examine how cybersecurity crosses national boundaries and thereby challenges traditional, state-oriented understandings and responses. Upon graduation, students should be able to work closely and communicate effectively with a wide range of both technical and policy experts in the public, nonprofit, and private realms.
