There’s a good chance you’ve heard a few things about cybersecurity in recent
months. Maybe you’ve been reading about data breaches, which pose a constant threat to everyone’s data. There are nearly 3 million unfilled cybersecurity positions in organizations around the world. This shortage in workers has serious consequences for the safety and security of global data. No matter what you’ve heard, it shouldn’t be surprising if you find yourself considering a career in cybersecurity. That’s why Schreiner has started our Cyber Security Learning Community – get the benefits of a Liberal Arts education with the community of likeminded peers preparing for the expanding cyber security industry.
Students in the Cyber Security Learning Community (CSLC) will benefit from deep mentoring opportunities both peer-to-peer with senior level students and faculty. This community brings industry connections for students to network with cybersecurity experts and alumni in the field, and be guided to summer jobs and internships as soon as their freshman year.
Through application demonstrations from senior-level students, Google certifications projects, and assisting in team competition preparation, students will build their skill set and confidence for a career in cybersecurity, regardless of their major or specific area of study. This Learning Community benefits students going for a cybersecurity major or minor and unveils the benefits of cyber security to non-IT majors as well.
