Online Computer Networking, Administration and Security Degrees

Computer networking degrees and network security degrees prepare you for work maintaining and protecting linked computer systems. Network administrators generally maintain and repair such systems while network security professionals protect them from accidents and cyber security threats. Smaller organizations often employ one person to fill both roles, as there is generally a lot of overlap between network administration and network security degrees. Popular computer networking degrees include a BS in Computer Networking and a Master of Network & Communications Management.

The BLS estimates an astounding 53% increase in such employment through 2018, which is much faster than the average for most other IT careers and all professions in general. A bachelor's-level computer networking degree or network security degree can qualify you for entry-level positions, though earning a master's may be necessary if you want to advance into management.
