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.
Why Consider a Cybersecurity Minor?
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. The program is open on a space available basis to students who are not majoring in Computer Science, Cybersecurity, Data Science, or Math/Computer Science.
