BS Cybersecurity (80 credits)

Experiential Learning

Students are required to enroll in and pass one experiential learning experience as part of their degree requirement.  There is no minimum number of credit hours for this requirement.  To complete this requirement, students may take one or more of the following classes:  CYS/CSC/CIT 292/392/492 undergraduate research,  CYS/CSC/CIT 296/396 Practicum, CEP 300 Cooperative Education  or SCI 393 STEM Ambassadors . Credit for courses vary and some courses may be taken for 0 to 6 credit hours.  While students can receive experiential learning credit with a 0-credit course, courses that will also be used as elective credit, as listed above, must take one of these courses for at least 1 credit hour.  In order to take one of these classes, permission must be obtained from the department.  

If a student is not able to complete any of these courses, then they should consult their advisor and the program director for other options.
