This fall, Pensacola State College will offer a bachelor’s degree in cybersecurity. The new program provides an option for current students as well as those who have graduated from PSC’s associate's degree program or those already in cyber careers.
The degree was approved by the Florida Department of Education on Jan. 6 and is part of Gov. Rick Scott’s $10,000 Degree Challenge and was designed in partnership with local information technology firms like Global Business Solutions Inc., and AppRiver.
Freshman entering the associate’s degree program who declare cybersecurity as their major will pay a total tuition of $10,000 for the four-year degree, which is otherwise about $13,000. The third and fourth years toward the bachelor’s total about $6,700.
Graduates of PSC’s four-year program earn 19 industry certifications that are sought by employers.
