The Hacking and Cybersecurity degree combines criminal justice and computer information systems coursework with a strong base of liberal arts courses to prepare students for transfer into bachelor's degree programs in Digital Forensics, Cybersecurity, and other related programs.

This is primarily a transfer program, and the college has established agreements with several SUNY schools that offer related bachelor's degree programs.

Hudson Valley has two dedicated and secure computer laboratories designed specifically for this program.

This program is offered through the Computer Science and Mathematics Department.
