Rose State College’s nationally known Cyber Security program will now be offered fully online as well as in the classroom.
Students are now able to enroll in the program, with classes beginning August 19.
Rose State College is the only community college in the country that offers all six federal cyber security certifications. Students who enroll will still need to go through admissions, talk with an advisor and, specifically for cyber security, submit to a law enforcement background check, as do traditional cyber security enrollees.
The new method of delivery for cyber security doesn’t change the curriculum, just allows for more students to be enrolled to meet demand, said program director Ken Dewey. The degree was approved by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education in May, Dewey said.
“We’re excited we can offer this option,” said Dewey. “Many students are unable to attend because of distance or because of hours they have to work. This breaks through that barrier to learning cyber security.”
Rose State College’s Cyber Security program is designed to prepare students with the knowledge to gain immediate employment in the cyber security field. The cyber security program’s emphasis includes an understanding of wireless, biometrics and remote access technologies along with computer forensic investigating methods. Customized student options are offered.
Rose State College’s Cyber Security program has been selected as a Center of Academic Excellence by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.
