To meet the demands of this popular 21st-century field, college and universities are offering cybersecurity college scholarships and cybersecurity majors. Schools that don't offer specific cybersecurity majors may offer a similar degree path that can lead to a career in cybersecurity, including computer science, information science, information assurance and security, computer forensics, computer engineering and computer programming. Obtaining a four-degree in any of these or related fields can help qualify you for a career in cybersecurity. Becoming certified as a cybersecurity specialist can also increase your career opportunities and earning potential; some employers may require it.
