Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security (BSCS)
The Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security (BSCS) encourages students to gain knowledge of cyber terrorism based on a mixture of disciplines to include the management of information technology, psychology, security policy analysis and assurance, criminology, and business. The degree is aimed at candidates who are already in the field and require further development of comprehensive methods to plan, analyze, design, develop and implement cyber security strategies, policies and governance standards. Upon completion of the undergraduate degree, graduates will engage in a Capstone project encompassing intelligence and practical security applications, which can further lead to post graduation certifications such as the CISSP. Input from the National Security Agency’s (NSA) was sought throughout the building of the BSCS curriculum.

The scope of Digital Forensics is a shared concentration of the Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration and the Bachelor’s of Criminal Justice, jointly developed by the faculty of undergraduate business administration and criminal justice programs. Candidates studying digital forensics will pursue a hands-on approach to criminology and cyber terrorism threats by learning topics such as ethical hacking, investigations and forensics as they pertain to the legal issues faced by private and public organizations. An eye on the National Security Agency’s (NSA) advancements and changes are integrated throughout the curriculum.

Master of Science in International Sport Coaching
The Master of Science in International Sport Coaching is designed to allow individuals with very specific job requirements to advance their career as a competitive sport coach, manager and leader. Coaches’ typical working hours are from 3 p.m. until well into the evening in most cases and therefore they cannot attend traditional evening classes. This degree is designed as a sport specific cohort curriculum for online delivery in order to meet the specific needs of coaches or program administrators, including general leadership, management and decision making skills both in the organization and in the physical training of athletes. Specifically the course content areas are management, leadership, research and organizational behavior and planning. The scientific areas cover the lifespan and psychosocial aspects of children, preadolescences and adults. The physiological, mechanical and neuromotor control aspects of movement are covered in this case in very sport specific courses and require the use of cinematographic and other technologies. The Capstone course will require an entire audit of the organization in terms of organizational effectiveness, the application of science and technology and demonstration of an effective season planning process.
