Frequently Asked Questions
Common questions about Cybersecurity.
No, but you may need one to get hired, and having a degree in Cybersecurity provides a massive advantage in earning potential and salary. People with a bachelor’s degree also have a 50% lower rate of unemployment, and on average they make an additional $630,000 to $900,000 over their lifetime, even more in high-growth fields like this one.
By taking our program, you’ll be more than ready for the Certified Computer Forensics Examiner, Certified Ethical Hacker, and Certified Information Systems Security Professional certifications. These will play a HUGE role in differentiating you from other candidates employers are considering!
Yes! The only way to make sure our program gives you the skills you need to get hired and teaches you to work through real-world problems that actually matter is to partner with the people out there who are actually doing it. Our collaboration with Fortune 500 companies and subject matter experts means that their multi-billion-dollar expertise is reflected in everything you’ll study here.
Cybersecurity is huge, and our graduates can take their coveted skills in any direction they’re interested in. If you favor a more generalist approach, you may focus on information technology. If you’ve always been interested in hacking, you may want to land a job in preventing digital security breaches. As a cybersecurity grad, the high-paying possibilities available to you across industries are essentially endless.
A flipped classroom is one where the focus is not on lectures, but on discussion, projects, and problem-solving. Students in flipped classrooms get the chance for more instructor feedback, and as a result have been found to learn much, much faster.
If you enjoy creative problem solving, if you like working on the cutting edge of technology, if you are looking for a degree that opens a ton of doors to different high-growth careers, if you are curious about how things work, and if you’re looking for a way to take part in bringing about a more secure future, you should consider this major.
Flexibility. Optional Synchronous means our Supply Chain courses can be attended together at one time with other students, or on your own schedule. Many students prefer the learning that comes with live interactions, while other students love the flexibility of doing them whenever they fit into their schedule.
This major is part of an exclusive partnership between Adrian College and Rize Education, which means you’ll be learning with students from your campus, as well as students from a selective consortium of schools across the country. The goal is to help you begin building a national network of people in your industry before you’ve even graduated.
Not at all! In fact, recent research shows our “language brain” is more important to programming ability than our “math brain.” So rest assured that, no matter how good (or bad) you are with math, cybersecurity could be the subject for you to earn an incredible salary.
