Murray State Renames Cybersecurity Program
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MURRAY - Murray State University has renamed its award-winning telecommunications systems management Bachelor of Science program — designated a program of distinction —to cybersecurity and network management.

The name change represents the evolution of the technology and telecommunications industries over the program’s 20 years. The university says the new title was chosen to better represent the topics covered in the academic program and known by the technology community, making the program more marketable to industry and potential students.

Murray State’s cybersecurity and network management program offers tracks in cybersecurity, wireless communications and network and systems administration.

Students have the choice of obtaining a CNM degree by attending classes on campus or through the CNM online degree program. Students on campus can begin the program of study at Murray State or transfer into it after earning an associate degree through a 2+2 option.

In 2019, Murray State was designated a Center for Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security.
