Cybersecurity majors are expected to demonstrate a serious attitude toward the University's liberal arts Core Requirements and to select their elective courses with care, since not all cybersecurity major courses are considered liberal arts. This may mean that majors could need additional credits in liberal arts beyond what is taken for the Fisher core, the major, and the chosen minor if applicable.
Students contemplating a major in cybersecurity should take MATH 150C in the first year.
B.S. in Cybersecurity
