Starting in Fall 2018, five required courses will teach students everything from the basics of criminal justice and ethics to strategic cybersecurity and law enforcement in the digital age. Additionally, students will choose one elective based on their preference for further study in criminology, counterterrorism, computer networking, or digital forensics, among others. Students can also complete an internship to satisfy the 3-hour elective requirement.

The Certificate in Cyber Crime is offered by the Department of Social Sciences in conjunction with the School of Computer & Cyber Sciences, and it is open to students of all majors.
