The college, located in a rural area of northern Virginia, is one of the first in the country to offer a degree in digital communication and communication technology, the college’s director, Alex Miller, told CoinDesk in an email.
Albright’s first two degrees are in digital marketing, and the school has since opened a second program in the field of information security and privacy, Miller said.
The college’s students are also working on a new curriculum that includes “learning and teaching on digital privacy and security,” he added.
“Students are already studying the basics of digital privacy.
Our students are now looking to learn more.”
The college recently began accepting applications for incoming freshmen, and has set up a $100,000 endowment to pay for the program, Miller added.
Albus Albright College of Communications, located just south of Washington, D.C., is one the first schools in the U.S. to offer an English major in digital communications and communications technology.
The school offers two programs in digital and digital media.
Students in the Albright program receive bachelor’s degrees in computer science, digital communications, or both, and can complete the digital communications degree by working with students on an internships basis, according to its website.
Students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in information security also qualify for a bachelor of science degree in computer security, and those with a bachelor in information systems can choose to pursue a bachelor degree in data security, Miller told CoinMarketCap.
Miller declined to disclose how much the college has paid the two programs.
AlBright is also working with other schools, such as the University of Utah and Georgetown University, to prepare students for their final exams, which will be on Dec. 31, 2018, the school said.
Albrights graduates, who typically earn between $50,000 and $70,000 annually, can expect to earn a master’s degree within two years of graduation, according the school.
A bachelor’s in information technology degree is typically offered at schools such as Texas Tech University and Virginia Tech.
Albets students receive a certificate in digital media, a certificate of completion in digital content and a certificate that indicates the student is proficient in digital technology, according Albright.
Students must complete a bachelor or master’s of information systems degree, and complete the CIS certification.
Miller said Albright has a “growing list of partners,” including Google, Google Apps, Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, and Twitter.
“Our goal is to grow the school to an international destination, and we’re very excited to join other schools in this exciting journey,” he said.
