Historically Black Grambling State University in Louisiana has received approval from the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors to offer a bachelor of science degree in cybersecurity. The new program will be the first bachelor’s degree in the field in the state of Louisiana. The program will begin enrolling students in the fall of 2019.
The new program’s development was led by Dr. Yenumula B. Reddy, a department of computer science faculty member, researcher, and member of the Louisiana Cybersecurity Commission.
“We are excited about the work of Dr. Reddy and his team,” said Grambling State University president, Rick Gallot. “Their continuous innovation in research and the classroom are paving the way for this program. We are excited for the impact their leadership and our system-level support will have on our state and economy.”
