Is an online degree in Network Security a good idea?

By kennethml224 ·
I'm considering getting a Bachelor's of Science in Network Security from the University of Advancing Technology. I'm a little unsure about doing this for two reasons:

1. I don't think UAT is a "well known" college. I could get a degree in CIS from a number of good colleges in my state. I'm afraid this could hurt my chances of getting a job.

2. Is a BA in Network Security an established, usable degree like Computer Information Systems?

This is where I'm at now:
Experience: 2 years as a LAN admin for a small business.
Education: AAS in Networking, plus LAN Admin cert, hope to get CCNA soon.

My reason for considering online college: easier to attend while working full-time.

Any input would be greatly appreciated by this IT noob. Thanks. -Kenneth
