Behind-the-Screen Crime Solving

Cell phone vulnerabilities. Data breaches. Cyber jihadism. Domestic extremists on social media. As our technology becomes increasingly sophisticated, so do the digital crimes on computers and mobile devices. Technical forensic computing professionals are highly sought after by private companies, law enforcement and government agencies.

The online BS in Professional Technology Studies with a Computer Forensics concentration provides students with a strong, broad-based knowledge of information technology and a working understanding of the criminal justice system and cybercrime. Students will gain hands-on experience solving cybercrime in virtual labs and have opportunities to develop security plans for computer networks. Our faculty bring their extensive experience to the online learning environment to give students insight into real-world problems and solutions that major companies develop and utilize.
