Cybersecurity Management is responsible for protecting an organization, its information systems and computer networks from various types of cyber-attacks. This high-demand career field offers great opportunities in government agencies and the private sector. By integrating technology, management, and behavioral sciences, students can rely on a well-rounded degree program to provide them with the experiences and ability to analyze not only cyber security and related issues but the behavioral, social, and political origins of cyber conflicts as well.
Requirements for Graduation:
To be eligible for graduation, students majoring in Cybersecurity Management must complete a minimum of 121 credits of which 48 credits must be from non-business courses, achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher, and complete the General Education Requirements of the College. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required for First Year Seminar and all courses taken as part of Foundations. Courses used to complete the General Education Requirements may not be taken on a pass/fail basis.
The General Education Requirements of the college require students to successfully complete First Year Seminar, Foundations (FCO 103 will be a required co-requisite with FCO 105 for students who have a high school GPA below 3.20), Disciplinary Perspectives, and a Constellation. Students who enter the college with 30 credit hours completed will not take a First Year Seminar course and therefore must take an additional 3 credits for graduation. While transfer students that are awarded 60 or more credits upon acceptance to York College will not be required to complete a Constellation, students are required to complete certain constellation courses as part of the major requirement.
Students majoring in Cybersecurity Management must maintain a 2.0 or higher in the General Business Component courses and a 2.0 average in the Cybersecurity Management, Information Technology, and Concentration component courses. In addition, students must attain a 2.0 or higher in each course that serves as a prerequisite to a subsequent Business course. (Refer to the course description for specific prerequisites.) Failure to attain a 2.0 in prerequisite courses may lengthen the time to graduation. Students graduating with a declared major in Cybersecurity Management may not simultaneously declare a minor in Business Administration, Information Technology Management, or Information Dynamics & Decision Making, or a major in Intelligence Analysis.
