AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The University of Maine System has approved creation of a cybersecurity program.

Trustees on Monday said the four-year bachelor of science in cybersecurity will feature coursework in computer science, communications and ethics. It’s being made available in partnership with the University of Maine, University of Southern Maine and Fort Kent and Augusta campuses.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics is predicting growing demand in the cybersecurity field.

Officials say the program will prepare students for careers in security analysis, information assurance, digital forensics, intelligence, and cyber defense to name a few.
