The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree Cybersecurity is needed in every industry setting making the number of opportunities for cyber professionals fairly large.

Whether it is education, military, healthcare, criminal justice or business, cybersecurity experts are needed in almost every industry. Olivet's program focuses on developing cybersecurity experts who are needed to fill the almost 300,000 open cybersecurity positions across the United States. By taking several additional network-specific courses, students may easily earn a double major in Computer Science.

Industry Standards

The experiential learning environment at Olivet is built on the latest technology and current industry standards. This carefully designed curriculum aligns with criteria set by the Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Security Agency’s Knowledge Units.

Integrating Cybersecurity with Faith

Choosing a career in cybersecurity means a lifelong commitment to the utmost integrity in the workplace. When you walk into work each day, an untold number of jobs and millions of dollars may be on the line, all dependent on your willingness and ability to do your job with integrity. Even though there’s a desperate shortage of cybersecurity experts, employers aren’t just seeking anyone with the required skill set. Rather, companies are looking for applicants who show both top notch technical savvy and an unwavering commitment to their values.
