Post-Baccalaureate Cybersecurity Certificate

A Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Cybersecurity is available to students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree. The program is designed to prepare students for success in IT Security, Cybersecurity, Information Assurance, and Information System Security.

Note: SoPA also offers Post-Baccalaureate Certificates in Business Systems Analysis, Integrated Application Development, and Information Technology. Each requires the 6 core courses from the Applied Computing undergraduate program plus six additional concentration courses.
