Webster University was recently named the first private non-profit university based in Missouri, where Webster was founded in 1915, to receive accreditation from the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The accreditation applies to Webster's Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with an Emphasis in Cybersecurity program and was awarded through the National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD), which is jointly sponsored by the DHS and NSA.

In addition to the bachelor's program, Webster offers master's degrees and graduate certificates in cybersecurity as well. Learn about all Webster's cybersecurity offerings here.
