The interdisciplinary computer forensics minor integrates criminal justice and computer science and combines both theoretical concepts and practical skills to prepare students for a career in computer forensics-related fields. Students study theoretical and practical foundations of computer security, forensic methodologies and processes, digital evidence gathering and preservation, criminal investigation and examination, and criminal law related to court presentation. Students gain hands-on experience using real state-of-the-art computer forensic tools employed by law enforcement.
