Cybersecurity Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Science and Engineering

Department of Computer Science, College of Science and Engineering

28 credits

Introduction

Challenges in cybersecurity are in the headlines on a daily basis and prove to be far more than a technical problem as they affect businesses, personal lives, and every area of society. CyberSecurity is a multi-disciplinary field that crosses many lines and explores multiple issues bringing together areas such as Criminal Justice, Psychology, Accounting and Economics, etc. The CyberSecurity Minor is for students who are interested in complementing their major, or who want to explore the area deeper than in a certificate, but who are not prepared to engage in a highly technical major. Students in Computer Science are not eligible for this minor.
