An Education Built for You

From the start of your time at Hartwick, you’ll engage in co-curricular coursework across Physical and Life sciences, as well as Arts and Humanities, preparing you not just for how to respond to a cybersecurity threat, but to analyze, investigate and prevent such attacks. You could even take a course in ethical hacking!

Your Academic Advisor will help you find classes that combine your skills and interests, and your Career Coach will guide you in finding internships where you can put those skills to real-world experience. Alumni Mentors will share their own tips and tricks of the trade too – and especially how to get your foot in the door with a great company.

You’ll spend your senior year deep in research for your senior thesis, then present your findings at Student Showcase. It all goes on your digital resume, showing employers that you’ve got the skills to succeed.
