Minor in Cybersecurity

Students may seek an academic major or minor in cybersecurity.

The cybersecurity minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by providing a study of the principles, issues, and technologies pertinent to the field of cybersecurity.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in cybersecurity requires the completion of 15 credits of coursework in cybersecurity. All courses allowable for the major apply.

Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 9 credits must be earned in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
