Graduate Certificate in Cybersecurity Studies

UAH's College of Business offers a graduate certificate program in cybersecurity studies designed to teach participants how to secure and defend networks, recover from security failures, use computer forensics, and manage data security.

In addition to receiving a graduate certificate from UAH, students will also receive training to help them prepare for tests to qualify them for additional security certifications, such as Security+ and Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). Because it is a graduate program, credit hours earned in the information assurance program can also be applied toward a master’s degree.
