The Computer Forensics and Security minor is designed to complement a wide range of majors. The minor includes one course focused on vulnerabilities, a forensics course focused on individual computers, a forensics course focused on networks and a course on network security.

Two electives provide flexibility to tailor the minor to each student's interests and career goals. For example, a student might choose a more in-depth course in hardware, mobile applications, command line tools, networking or firewalls.
