The programme

Whether you're new to the IT field or you're looking to move up to middle management, this major can help you prepare for a career as a network manager, systems administrator, or network security analyst. "The only security that we've actually achieved in cyber security is job security," Gerald N. "Chip" Willard, senior technical leader at the National Security Agency, explained at UMUC's 2015 Cyber Connections event.

UMUC was named a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance and Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security.1 Our cyber security students frequently take first place in cyber competitions, and our graduates are often recruited by top firms and agencies they've met through the program.

The bachelor's degree program in computer networks and cyber security begins with courses designed to build your foundational IT skills. You'll then focus on the network security side of IT, learning Microsoft and Cisco technologies, as well as other cyber security and digital forensics topics. Specifically, you'll write a proposal to design a network, including a plan to administer and maintain the network; learn how to install and configure advanced Windows server services; implement advanced server infrastructure; and troubleshoot IT problems.

Through your coursework, you will learn how to:

  • Design, implement, and administer local-area and wide-area networks to satisfy organizational goals
  • Resolve IT system problems and meet the needs of end users by applying troubleshooting methodologies
  • Apply relevant policies and procedures to effectively secure and monitor IT systems
