The UTSA Carlos Alvarez College of Business is offering a new graduate certificate in cyber security. This 12-hour certificate program is designed to give non-cyber professionals (e.g. non-degree seeking professionals in non-cyber occupations such as engineering, finance, psychology, etc.) the knowledge and technical skills needed to deal with cyber security issues that impact a wide variety of fields.
Offered by the college’s Department of Information Systems and Cyber Security, this certificate will provide a common framework for understanding cyber security, as well as allow for specialization in specific areas such as law, policy, analysis, response, etc.
As this certificate is for non-cyber professionals, you will already have received this fundamental knowledge during your degree program. If you are considering graduate-level work in cyber, we recommend the Master of Information Technology with a concentration in Cyber Security (MSIT Cyber).
Please note: If you are pursing your MSIT Cyber, you are not able to receive credit toward your degree from this Graduate Certificate.
The application process for the Cyber Security Certificate is streamlined and does not require standardized test scores.
The form will be signed by the Certificate Program Advisor and the Dean of the College or Director of the Center in which the certificate program is housed. A copy of this form will be sent to the Graduate School.
