Online Cybercriminology and Security Studies B.S.

Learn how to guard our nation, organizations, and citizens against the growing threat of cyber attacks and physical security breaches. More jobs than ever are available in this important sector — and our major in cybercriminology and security studies can help you land one.

Start by gaining a strong understanding of criminology and criminal justice, then deepen your knowledge in specialized areas. Choose the cybercrime concentration to learn how to analyze, investigate, and respond to digital threats. Or choose the physical security concentration to learn how to prevent loss and security breaches in institutional, commercial, private, or industrial settings.

Comprehensive courses taught by award-winning faculty are just the start. Gain real-world experience by networking with professionals at departmental conferences, access an on-campus forensic laboratory, join the criminal justice professional fraternity, and possibly even land your first job at the annual criminology career fair.

"There is a fast-growing need for students who can speak the language of these fields — a national and international need."
— Shannon Barton, professor of criminology and criminal justice
