Computer Security

As our world becomes increasingly digital and everything from accounting to workforce management moves online, computer security is growing more important and more scrutinized. Job opportunities in this field are multiplying, and salaries are growing.

With training in computer technology and digital forensics, you can work in prevention by working to secure existing systems, law enforcement, and even investigations. Depending on your specific focus within LCCC’s Computer Security program, you may receive training in network management, accounting, criminal investigation and law, or data recovery. Either way, you’ll have highly focused, technical skills suitable for the workforce.

The program offers short-term certificates that can be earned in one semester, one-year certificates, and an Associate Degree. Of course, you may choose to further your education beyond LCCC through our University Partnership or transfer programs.

Getting started while you’re still in high school

You don’t have to wait to graduate from high school to start earning college credit.

The College Credit Plus program offers you an opportunity to earn college credit as early as seventh grade. Courses are frequently offered on-site at local high schools. Students may also have the option of taking LCCC classes online or on our campus. Classes taken through CCP count for both high school and college credit and are FREE for most students. 

The MyUniversity program, a unique partnership between LCCC and area high schools, provides a pathway for high school students to the full college experience – starting in high school!
