Information Security: Computer Science

The Information Security Graduate Certificate is an interdisciplinary online practitioner-based offering concentrating in the growing field of information security. This certificate is comprised of five courses offered by the Business Information Systems and Computer Science departments in the Haworth College of Business and College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, respectively. Two core courses are required, and then students must select one of the specialized tracks—Information Security Management or Secure Software and Engineering--to complete the certificate. 

Students working towards the certificate must be admitted into the graduate college as a non-degree seeking student and must have a bachelor degree in either a technical discipline or an appropriate discipline related to their chosen track. Students with other bachelor degrees and professional experience will also be considered. 

The graduate certificate is offered completely online. Students do not need to attend classes at the main or any regional campuses in order to earn the certificate.

Graduate credit is earned for all passing classes.
