What college major do I start with?

So most, if not all , colleges don’t have a specific Kali Linux course. Which college major would eventually direct me towards the learning and certification of ethical hacking??

I suggest you google > ethical hacking certification (or degree) this info. You’ll find more colleges and schools that have what you want.

Welcome to the forum!

Depending on where you are from, any IT major that teaches you network engineering. Linux will be one of your major tools, and you will know the weak points in a network hackers are trying to exploit.

You will also be equipped for AI if you like to change careers. AI data centers will have a growing need for people that can develop and run the advanced networks more powerful AIs will use.

Kali Linux is simply a tool that you might use, so it makes sense that there wouldn’t be a course on it just like there aren’t often courses for tools like Microsoft Excel. Some schools may have dedicated security degree paths. Some might offer it as a program or area of focus with a Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Systems Engineering degree. Other schools might not focus heavily on security as a field of study and only offer a few courses here and there. The best thing to do is to talk to your academic advisor about what options are available to you.
