In this digital information age, it’s no secret that cyber-attacks have become more prevalent.

As a result, there’s an increasing need for trained and ethical security professionals. According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, over the next decade, the demand for information security professionals is expected to grow 35%, compared to a 15% growth in general computer science occupations.

But what makes Friends University’s program unique?

In the last few years, Wichita has become a budding hub for information security. IT service management company, Novacoast, Inc. recently relocated their corporate headquarters to Wichita, while other security companies like Knowmadics have been establishing locations here. Through Friends University, cyber students not only have internship opportunities with these industry leaders, they also have viable career options available right upon graduation.

Unlike other cyber programs, Friends University’s curriculum covers a broad spectrum of topics to develop professionals for a wide range of careers. While many programs focus on a single career path, our Bachelor of Science will give you an understanding of how programming and security within software programs work in addition to learning penetration testing, ethical hacking, network security, operating system security, among other subjects. All of this is done through hands-on learning in our state-of-the-art INTRUST Bank Cyber Security Laboratory, taught by educators who have real-world experience and expertise in the field.

Now this degree option is more affordable than ever because Friends University just announced a new $6,000 Cyber Security scholarship! And those who graduate with a cyber degree will also have earned CompTia Security+ certification; a baseline certification that is recognized globally. It’s built into the program!

If you want a profession where you can support the community with technical expertise, consider a career in cyber security. Your training at Friends University will not only set the course toward a meaningful career, it will develop you into an industry leader of character. Apply today!
