The computer forensics minor prepares students for work on a forensics team in either a law enforcement or corporate setting.
A minor in computer forensics requires between 27 and 30 credit hours, depending upon ACT/SAT scores or successful completion of placement testing. Although the balance of information technology and criminal justice coursework required for the study of computer forensics may seem daunting at first glance, two of the courses in the minor, “ INF 120 Elementary Programming - NS (3 credits)” and “ JUS 101 Introduction to Criminal Justice - SB (3 credits),” also satisfy general education requirements. This minor is particularly well suited for students majoring in either computer information technology or criminal justice, in which case the credit hours required amount to 21 or fewer.
Special graduation requirements: Students must earn a grade of C- or better in each course that counts as part of a major or minor for all programs offered by the department.
