The BSNOS is still listed as well, so I'm thinking no (for now, anyway). Maybe an eventual replacement, though.

Very interesting! I would think the plan is to eventually replace the BSNOS. It looks like it'll be a stronger curriculum that's more differentiated as opposed to just a "lighter" cybersecurity degree with CCNA and an extra cloud class thrown in.

It's now live on the site and the link to the NOS degree has been removed, so I'm guessing that program is no longer taking new applicants. (The page itself is still up.)

it has a course on Version Control
about freaking time WGU offered that

most of their other IT degrees have the ridiculous CompTia A+ courses
I've long thought those were useless and should be replace with a course about Git and other things from MIT's missing semester
https://missing.csail.mit.edu/

a software development degree without a version control course is just dumb

Honestly... I want what the Cisco version of this program has to offer AND what the BSCSIA has to offer. I might get both (or start one, get the certs I want from that one, then finish with the other).

Cool, just looked at the program they have on the link above. Seems like a pretty good program packaged in place...

You could just go for the one that better aligns to your current or future job, then get whatever relevant certs you want for less than The cost of tuition.

True enough, but the structure (however loose) of an actual degree program is likely to keep me in line to actually finish what I need to finish. (I also considered just doing the Cisco BSNES and then moving on to the MSCSIA at WGU... but I really want to do the Masters in Cybersecurity from Georgia Tech after undergrad.)
