With more than 34 billion connected devices expected by 2025, Kutztown University's new sub-baccalaureate certificate, including courses in criminal justice and computer science, addresses the growing need and demand for cybersecurity.
This 18-credit program is unique in its ability to apply concepts of information security, the gathering and preserving of cyber evidence, along with analyzing cybercrimes through the criminological lens of analyzing human behavior and social systems. The program can be completed in as few as three semesters.
Students will learn about the cybersecurity threats and strategies used to defend against persistent cyberattacks that could be dangerous and costly. Students will also learn about proactive ways to stop or mitigate cyberattacks. Advancements in technology are important drivers of criminal activity.
This program is a collaborative initiative between the Departments of Criminal Justice and Computer Science and Information Technology.
