WGU's Center for Cyber Education (CCE)
WGU'S CCE is an interdisciplinary center and a leader in cyber education and training. CCE began in January 2020 as a collaborative effort between administration, faculty, and staff across WGU to strengthen cyber education and training opportunities nationwide. CCE is dedicated to supporting cyber education across disciplines and affords students access to curriculum, programs, and industry partnerships that will give them skills needed in a 21st-century cyber workforce. CCE provides students with faculty trained in areas like network security, cryptography, digital forensics, cyber law, cyber policy, cloud security, cyber defense, and data management.
WGU's B.S. Cybersecurity and Information Assurance degree program has been designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense through the academic year 2026. The focus of the NCAE program is to promote higher education and research in cybersecurity and to develop agile cybersecurity professionals to fight the cyber threats our country faces.
