Why Cybersecurity at Stetson University?
Cyber attacks are the fastest-growing crime in the United States, and they are especially increasing in size, sophistication and cost.

Opportunities in the Classroom
The Cybersecurity program features smaller classes with personal attention and hands-on experience. Students receive invaluable industry knowledge, including a focus on both ethical and corrupt hacking.
“The greatest things about Stetson University's cybersecurity program is the hands-on approach and practical learning style that is important in an emerging field as well as the one-on-one relationships with the professors.”

“I’m really surprised at how far we made it. … There was no research ever done on this. I’m really happy. … We essentially created a tool for anybody to use.”

Cybersecurity is quickly becoming one of the most important issues today. As a society integrated into the internet one way or another, we depend on these systems to work properly. As a result, everyone's data is at risk. So, it's up to the cybersecurity professional to protect it.
The world needs authorized cybersecurity professionals on the "white hat," or ethical side of hacking, who are acting just the same as the black hat or malicious hacker. Our Cybersecurity program will instruct students on how to stay ahead of unethical hackers and beat them at their own game. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, job growth in cybersecurity is projected to grow approximately 33% through 2030.
