Hilbert College, St. Bonaventure University collaborate to offer degrees in cybersecurity

HAMBURG, N.Y. — Hilbert College and St. Bonaventure University announced today that they will each offer Bachelor of Science degree programs in Cybersecurity beginning in the fall of 2016.  They are the only higher education institutions in the region to offer undergraduate majors in this high-demand field.

The two institutions will share faculty resources to offer the programs, taking advantage of Hilbert’s strength in its Department of Computer Security and Information Assurance and St. Bonaventure’s expertise in its Department of Computer Science.

No travel between campuses will be necessary for students or faculty, as shared courses will be offered via distance-learning technology.
