CyberCriminology and Security Studies Certificates
The School of Criminology and Security Studies will offer two (2) separate certificates in Cybercriminology and Security Studies starting Fall 2023. These certificates are designed for non-majors or non-degree seeking students. The certificate programs will be stackable and target individuals who may either want to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Cybercriminology and Security Studies or are already pursuing the degree or are not pursuing a degree but rather training for their job. This means that all courses taken are also courses needed for the major or minor. Therefore, if a student decides to enroll and major, double major, or add a minor, all the courses taken for the certificate can be applied to the major or minor. There are business majors that want to have a cybersecurity certificate as well that complements their business degree. Students may also use the certificates to build towards a minor in the designated area. Finally, those who are working in the field of Cybercriminology and Security Studies could use these certificates to enhance their marketability.
