Webster Adds Multiple Cybersecurity and Analytics Majors in San Antonio

Webster UniversitySeveral new graduate programs will be available at Webster University’s San Antonio Metro campus starting in the fall of 2024. Programs in cybersecurity and data analytics will be offered to students in Texas. 
The programs have previously been offered at Webster’s main campus in St. Louis but were recently approved by the State of Texas. 
“San Antonio is known to be a hub for cybersecurity and data analytics. A military town that also houses NSA and the FBI. Cybersecurity and data analytics are among the fastest-growing fields in the business and computer security professions in San Antonio,” said Shirley Caldera, director of Webster’s campus in San Antonio. “After multiple requests to offer the programs in San Antonio, we will begin offering the programs in fall 2024. The new additions will help meet both local and regional needs for employees with specific skill sets that are currently in high demand.” 
The programs being added to the San Antonio campus are: 

  • MS in Cybersecurity with an Emphasis in Artificial Intelligence;
  • MS in Cybersecurity with an Emphasis in Data Analytics;
  • MS in Data Analytics;
  • MS in Marketing with an Emphasis in Analytics;
  • MS in Business Analytics;
  • MBA with an Emphasis in Analytics.

Webster was one of the first universities in the Midwest to add a cybersecurity program and did so in 2013 at the request of the United States Air Force, which had a high need for officers with cybersecurity training. In 2019, Webster University was named as the first private nonprofit university in Missouri to receive accreditation from the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for Webster's Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with an Emphasis in Cybersecurity program. The accreditation was awarded through the National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense, which is jointly sponsored by the DHS and NSA.  
In 2022, Webster University’s Cybersecurity program was recognized as offering one of the most innovative instructional methods among cybersecurity programs in the United States by the National CyberWatch Center. 
Webster’s analytics programs have recently been expanded, as current employment trends show that the number of careers in business requiring analytics skillsets will increase by more than 10% over the next decade, which represents more than 1 million new jobs per year.
