Valley College Announces New Online Cybersecurity Degree Program

Expanding menu of in-demand programs train students to meet needs of area employers

Valley College is pleased to announce the release of a new Online degree program, the Cybersecurity Occupational Associates of Science degree. Target date for launch of the new program is May 20, 2016.   
The Cybersecurity program prepares graduates in as little as 15 months to establish security and protection measures from those who are seeking to hack and infiltrate the personal, financial, professional, information and/or intellectual capital of organizations around the country

Graduates of the program may find employment in a variety of business environments, from Finance to Healthcare to Retail Trade as well as Government Agencies.

Valley College offered its first Online business degree program in 1997 and since has expanded into medical and now information technology programs to meet the ever expanding needs of our local employment markets. "Valley College continues to provide life-changing career opportunities to those in our communities. Last year between 73% and 86% of graduates in our various programs and campuses landed their first job in a new career after graduation,” stated Vice President Beth Gardner.

“Cybersecurity experts are in high demand,” stated Jeannette King, President and CEO of Strategic Resolution Experts, a government contractor focused on information technology and management consulting.  “Every day there are ever-increasing incidents of high-profile security attacks against commercial and government organizations. These experts will be relied upon to secure networks and thwart attacks.  There is a significant need for cybersecurity experts throughout the country, with the highest demand in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, which is in Valley College’s backyard.”

Valley College continues its mission of delivering flexible, career oriented in-demand programs to the communities it serves.
