Program Overview:

Pace offers several academic programs with a cybersecurity focus. Our programs are taught at the graduate, undergraduate, and certificate levels. Our students range from new undergraduate to seasoned professionals updating their skills with an advanced certificate. We aim for our students to go on to become cybersecurity professionals who develop and implement essential security measures that strengthen the security posture. Areas of study include programming, cyber defense and threats, cryptography, biometrics, security design principles, web security, network and device forensics, and cybersecurity policy, legal, ethics, compliance.

We don’t just teach theoretical knowledge, either. Seidenberg students get hands-on, practical experience that puts them ahead when it comes to getting a job. Learn how to build encryption software in the Computer Forensics lab; hack and crack codes in the Applied Data & Networking Sciences lab; join hackathons with the Cybersecurity Education and Research lab.

Pace University is a designated National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the NSA and DHS. Maintaining this designation requires us, among other things, to have a curriculum aligned with national standards. In addition, students and faculty have numerous opportunities to stay current in the field through academic and professional development activities including research, conferences, student competitions, workshops, and interaction with industry professionals.
