Graduate Spotlight: James Marler
December 8, 2021
Meet James, he will be receiving an Associate of Applied Science in Information Technology Cybersecurity Specialist.
James is a veteran of the United States Navy where he served for 20 years. His interest in information technology started at a young age and followed him throughout his military career.
Once retired, James was eager to learn more about cybersecurity and explore a career in the field. He decided on St. Philip’s College since his wife had a positive experience with the Alamo Colleges as a medical assisting student at San Antonio College (SAC).
Although James has taken most of his classes online, he has enjoyed working with his professors and learning about the different aspects of cybersecurity. “The instructors are very detail-oriented and go out of their way to help us learn everything there is to know about the field,” James explained.
Upon graduating, James hopes to continue his education and obtain a bachelor’s degree from The University of Texas at San Antonio. He has dreams of one day working in the corporate sector with a technology company such as Microsoft.
