Cybersecurity at Western
Western offers Cybersecurity programs at both our Bellingham and Poulsbo campuses. Students can choose to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity, Cybersecurity Certificate, or Cybersecurity Minor. We prepare students for a career in preventing and responding to internet security breaches that threaten businesses, corporations, and the government. Past graduates have gone on to work for companies such as Amazon Web Services, Premera Blue Cross, and CI Security.
Western offers a unique joint academic program between WWU and Washington community colleges, culminating in a Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity. Students follow a "2+2" program pathway:
- The first 2 years- Students earn a specific cybersecurity transfer degree from one of our eight partner colleges.
- The last 2 years- Students earn their Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity from WWU on either our Bellingham or Poulsbo campus.
