SUMMARY

Choosing to study Computer and Information Systems Security is a valuable choice and naturally a mandatory first step for undergraduates choosing to enter a career as a white hat hacker, a cyber security engineer, or a cyber security specialist. Interestingly, computer and information systems security is a fairly common choice ranking as the 83rd most popular major. In the last year, there were 4,882 computer and information systems security degrees conferred. In-state tuition for computer and information systems security at private institutions is, on average, 3.1 times more spendy than their public counterparts.

There are 194 institutions which offer computer and information systems security. 194 schools is fairly average in terms of the number of institutions which offer each degree. If you are looking to surround yourself with other computer and information systems security students, consider universities in Utah which have the most students admitted to computer and information systems security annually. Zooming out, the best region to pursue computer and information systems security is in the Mid East region with Wilmington University, University of Maryland Global Campus, and Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to study computer and information systems security is the Big Ten Conference with Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus representing the conference. Based on our list of the best colleges, our selection for the best college for computer and information systems security is Bentley University.

The objectively 'best' school is not necessarily the 'best' school for you. There might be many more angels to weigh when choosing institution. External stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely alter one's feelings on where to go to school. At Authority, we have weighed the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you are interested in which computer and information systems security college boasts the best campus, the answer is Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus. If you are very interested in which college is home to the best campus, then we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more in order to compare every major in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life here and from that list, our pick for the college with the best student life for computer and information systems security is Bentley University. Curious why? Keep scrolling to discover more about Authority's top choices. Many of our decisions will probably shock you.

If price is a major influence in your choice of where you attend university, you might consider avoiding George Washington University. George Washington University appears to be the most expensive school for computer and information systems security, at least for out of state attendance. We do have an entire list of the most expensive universities that could put the price tag at George Washington University into perspective. You could also care to know that computer and information systems security is the 303rd most expensive program in the United States, with an average expense of $23,600. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for computer and information systems security nationally is District of Columbia demonstrated with a tuition of $54,453 at the main college in the state George Washington University. Even more broadly, the most expensive region for computer and information systems security is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Bentley University with a cost of $50,060, Champlain College with a cost of $41,728, and Norwich University with a cost of $39,234.

Our cheapest region for computer and information systems security is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Colorado Technical University-Colorado Springs with a cost of $11,896, Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, and Western Governors University with a cost of $6,380. More optimistically, the most affordable school for computer and information systems security is Brigham Young University-Provo. Authority.org's entire list of the most affordable colleges can be found here.

In-state learners can expect to pay around $9,900 for a degree in computer and information systems security. That cost balloons intensely to an average of $18,400 for an out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our pick for the college constituting the best value for computer and information systems security: Bentley University. On this page you can see our comprehensive list about the schools we see as being the best value overall. Bear in mind, this section is predicated on being an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for computer and information systems security students differ widely, but within two years leaving college graduates will regularly earn around $64,800. There can be much variation in earnings; top earners can experience pay up to $102,900. Even right out of college, the lowest earning positions within the computer and information systems security field make $40,900, which could be worse. The highest earning grads from computer and information systems security attended Stevens Institute of Technology and if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The all-around diversity of computer and information systems security is solid, coming in the 59th percentile of all programs. The college with the highest composite diversity for computer and information systems security is George Washington University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities with the most diversity. The financial diversity of Computer and Information Systems Security only stands within the 27th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, in the 63rd percentile. White collegians make up the largest proportion, 57%, of those studying computer and information systems security. Additionally, 81% of undergraduates pursuing a computer and information systems security degree are men.

The median rating of computer and information systems security professors is 4.1 stars, which is 2% greater than the average score across every major; this is a good score. If you want the most popular computer and information systems security instructor nationally, take a look at Mohamed Gebril at George Mason University. It might be shocking, but the top ranked professors for computer and information systems security by student are at Illinois State University. If we incorporate data beyond basic rankings it becomes clear that the college with the overall best professors for computer and information systems security is Stevens Institute of Technology. One can find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with some of the finest professors in the U.S.

Finally, the most difficult school to get into for computer and information systems security is Tulane University of Louisiana. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we have an extensive list for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you understand that looking at the education process with a perspective mainly formed from superlatives might create problems. We encourage you to explore our more focused pages on different schools and peruse a couple of our helpful background 'blog posts' on important things to consider as you continue your school search.
