Master the techniques to protect organizational assets online with a bachelor's degree in Cybersecurity.

Hackers become more powerful and cunning every second, and every organization has need of trusted professionals to safeguard their proprietary information. Our hands-on approach to Cybersecurity will prepare you to analyze network traffic, identify previous or ongoing attacks, and quickly remediate breaches. This program will teach you to evaluate a network from both sides, so you can find the vulnerabilities in a system before a hacker does—and create the defensive strategies to prevent an attack before it happens.*

You’ll also leave here with the skills to communicate effectively, articulate your career preparation confidently, and collaborate with others meaningfully. And in all things, we’ll help you work toward becoming a capable and trusted disciple of Jesus Christ. So whatever you do, you’ll be prepared to be the best you possible.

*Ensign College programs are designed to prepare students to be capable and trusted disciples with market-ready skills. The College programs are not designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional license or certification that is required for employment in an occupation in Utah or in any state, country, or territory.

Why Cybersecurity?

Because protecting company assets is among the top priorities for any organization operating in today's hazardous online climate. As a result, the US Bureau of Labor anticipates a 31% growth in Cybersecurity-related jobs over the next decade.

Businesses across the globe, including Federal agencies such as the CIA and FBI, and state and local government agencies, need experts in online security to help them fight predatory online practices.

The bachelor's degree in Cybersecurity from Ensign College is designed to train and develop the next generation of cyber warriors to defend corporate infrastructure. You'll graduate qualified to fill a variety of industry positions, including: Security Analyst, Security Auditor, Security Consultant, Penetration Tester, Risk Manager, and many more.
