All students who enroll in the minor will acquire a firmly grounded understanding of Cybersecurity, including training in Networking, Operating Systems, Virtualization, Cloud Computing, and both Defensive and Offensive stance of Cybersecurity. The inclusion of these courses in the minor will allow students to specialize in the area of cybersecurity that is most closely aligned with their respective interests and their degree plans. The minor is available to all students pursuing a baccalaureate degree.
All courses must be passed with a “C” (2.0) or better to be counted in the minor.
Credits older than 10 years must be approved by the CSCY Department Chair before being allowed to count towards the minor due to the rapid change in the industry.
