Cybersecurity programs at HBCUs: Which are well-regarded?

I'm super passionate about cybersecurity and protecting digital information, and I'd love to study this at an HBCU. Which HBCUs are known for having strong cybersecurity programs? Looking for recommendations from folks who have first or secondhand experience.

Hi there! It's fantastic that you have such a clear focus on what you want to study. My son also has a keen interest in cybersecurity, and during our research, we discovered that Norfolk State University has an excellent reputation for their cybersecurity program.

They have the Center of Excellence in Cybersecurity, which offers a lot of opportunities for hands-on learning and partnerships with notable agencies.

Howard University is another HBCU we looked into, which has a strong program and is designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the Department of Homeland Security and the National Security Agency.

While my child ended up choosing a different path, we were impressed by the resources and faculty at these institutions. Definitely worth checking out! Best of luck in finding a program that fits your aspirations!
