CFCC Partners with Utica College
to Help Cyber Crime Technology Students Continue Their Studies in Cybersecurity Field
Wilmington, NC – Cape Fear Community College recently signed an articulation agreement with Utica College in New York to provide a pathway for CFCC’s Cyber Crime Technology students to further their educations in the rapidly growing field of cybersecurity. Utica College has been recognized by the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education and a National Center of Digital Forensics Academic Excellence by the Defense Cyber Crime Center. Utica’s Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity is available online and at the New York campus, giving transferring CFCC students options about how and where they want to earn an advanced degree.
Students in Utica’s Cybersecurity program can pursue specializations in four critical cybersecurity areas: Network Forensics and Intrusion Investigation, Information Assurance, Cyber Crime and Fraud Investigation, and Cyber Operations.
“The program at Utica College is a perfect match for our students. Our graduates can finish their AAS degree while still living and working in the Wilmington area, then transfer to Utica as a junior. They can earn their Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity 100% online if they choose,” said Greg Vandergriff, program director of CFCC’s Cyber Crime Technology Program.
“Cybersecurity is a growing field with applications in every industry,” said CFCC President Jim Morton. “Cape Fear Community College provides students a strong academic foundation which will allow them to transfer to Utica and be successful.”
“CFCC actively pursues partnerships that help our students broaden their career options,” said Morton. “We want to give students in all our programs the chance to take advantage of the relationships we are building with employers, colleges, and universities across the county and state. CFCC will continue to build partnerships that support our students’ academic foundation and provide a strong framework for future success.”
