The Department of Computer and Information Sciences, with over 40 faculty and 1,200 undergraduate majors, started one of the first undergraduate cybersecurity tracks in the nation and the first in Maryland. We have been a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance and Cyberdefense (CAE-IAE/CD) since 2002. In 2013, Towson was designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations, one of only thirteen such institutions.
The CIS department has received cybersecurity grants from the National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, Army Research Lab, and several other federal and state agencies. From our award-winning Cyber Defense team, to our full Cyber Corps scholarships for cybersecurity students and our cybersecurity programs available at the undergraduate and graduate level, Towson University allows you to receive the education you need to succeed in the field.
