Digital Forensics Minor

Criminal Justice and Homeland Security

Overview

The minor in digital forensics provides students an opportunity to supplement or enhance their major program with digital forensics and cybersecurity coursework.  Digital Forensics knowledge is very useful for students in any area especially those who are majoring in cybersecurity, criminal justice, homeland security, psychology, the sciences, or business. Students who complete a minor in digital forensics will study how to acquire, analyze and manage evidence collected from computer, network, mobile, and IoT devices while investigating both civil and criminal incidents.  The increasing use of computers to commit crimes and the growing demand for computer-based data in civil proceedings has rapidly developed a need for forensic experts to extract useful information from digital evidence.
