Opportunities in Information Assurance
When Capitol announced in March the addition of a doctor of science (DSc) degree in information assurance to its academic programs, hundreds of potential doctoral students signed up for the program. Were you one of them? If you're interested in achieving academic excellence in information assurance and pursuing your education to the highest level, contact us with your questions about the admissions process, degree requirements, financial aid options, and course schedules.

IAIn addition, undergraduates will now have a chance to be awarded with a new $5,000 information assurance scholarship, supported by the Information Systems Security Association, a non-profit, international organization of information security professionals and practitioners. The award represents the first information assurance specific scholarship at the college that represents a professional IA society.
