Cyber Security

How It Works

The cyber security program is designed to meet specific academic and practical needs and is intended for students seeking to complete a first or second bachelor’s degree in the field of cyber security.

  • Offered fully online through the Elmhurst College Online Center.
  • The major includes ten courses (40 semester hours).
  • You can complete your major courses in less than two years.
  • Classes are eight weeks in length and the program is offered within a matrix of course modules that you will complete in a logical sequence.
  • In addition to completing the major requirements, all students must complete the Integrated Curriculum and elective courses required to earn the degree (32 course credits/128 semester hours).
  • All courses are taught by the faculty of Elmhurst College. Our faculty has extensive hands-on industry experience and stays current with academic research and trends. Our adjunct faculty reinforces the program’s real-world orientation with up-to-the-minute knowledge of business needs and practices.
  • You may be able to earn elective credits for life experience and other non-collegiate learning.
  • You will work with a faculty advisor who will take a personal interest in your success as you proceed toward graduation and beyond.
  • Although you communicate with professors and peers online, every course maintains the Elmhurst high-tech, high-touch spirit. Classes are small, so professors are able to devote the same high level of personal attention to each and every student.
