Abstract

This paper provides a cross-boundary process to guide colleges and universities creating undergraduate cyber curriculum or reviewing established programs. There is growing demand for academic institutions to help close the skills gap by developing cyber curriculum preparing students for careers in cybersecurity. The cross-boundary process in this paper builds on a multi-level, multi-discipline approach previously used to launch a new undergraduate cyber program. This expanded approach recommends evaluating advisory consortium feedback, master's degree programs, certifications, and internal considerations (e.g., faculty expertise). This paper is prepared by cyber faculty at a university offering both residential and online general education courses as well as undergraduate and master's degrees in cybersecurity. This paper further advances the call for discussion on the topic of cyber education.
