B.S. in Cybersecurity and Global Policy

Security on a global scale

A partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences and the Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies, this degree provides an in-depth understanding of the technology behind cyber and networked systems, and its global social policy implications.

Our first of its kind B.S. in Cybersecurity and Global Policy is a collaborative partnership between the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies. It will provide students with both the technical and policy expertise needed to excel in this high-demand, rapidly expanding field. Students will gain a sophisticated understanding of programming, data structures, networked systems, and security protocols while also learning about the wide range of privacy, cultural, economic, legal, security, and diplomacy issues surrounding the field of cybersecurity.

Globally, there are roughly 1.5 million cybersecurity job openings, and they rank among the highest paying in technology. Both public and private entities are in a daily battle to secure their networked systems against malicious attackers, and our graduates will enter the job force with technical, communication, area culture, legal, and policy-making skills to allow them to work closely with a wide range of experts in every industry sector.

Our graduates will understand how to explore the ways in which we perceive ourselves and the world, the way we communicate and engage with one another, and how we can strengthen the boundaries that protect our sensitive information and privacy.

From global terrorism and securing elections to combating the spread of misinformation and defending the data that is collected, understanding the risks and cultural impact of technology policy around the world is more important than ever. Our students will be on the frontline of the fight to secure our data, identities, and financial transactions.

Our interdisciplinary curriculum in technical, policy, and social foundations will give graduates the skills they need to make an impact.
