Our new Cybercriminology & Security Studies program prepares students in how to protect digital data and physical facilities. After completing a common core, students will choose to focus on either cybercrime or the security of physical complexes. This program is for students who have an interest in crime, but either do not choose to work for a criminal justice agency or want to specialize in cyber or security issues. Graduates of this program will work in criminal justice, private corporations, non-profit organizations, or the military.
Our Intelligence Analysis program will prepare students for collecting, organizing, evaluating, and analyzing information to improve decision-making. Students will learn the art of decision-making using structured analytical techniques and real-time assessment methods. While many of the students in this program will be interested in crime analysis, terrorism, and homeland security; these skills are useful for many occupations that deal with data and decision-making. Graduates of this program will work in criminal justice, the military, other governmental agencies, private corporations, and nonprofit organizations.
