A fast-growing segment of criminology is cybercrime, which encompasses all criminal activity involving computers, networks, and hacking. Cybercrime also encompasses cyber terrorism, along with economic and organized crimes that take place online. As we spend more and more of our time in the digital world, the discipline of cyber criminology becomes more and more important.
The Cybercrime/Terrorism Focus Area within the Master of Science in Criminology degree requires 9-credit hours of coursework. The required courses are outlined below and can be taken online or on campus.
The M.S. in Criminology degree requires 36 credit hours regardless of the focus area pursued. The classes in the Cybercrime/Terrorism Focus will replace three graduate courses approved by your academic advisor. Additionally, course 660 is a prerequisite for the focus area courses.

Join organizations like the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, the National Security Agency, private cybersecurity firms, and security software companies in spreading awareness and finding solutions to cybersecurity threats.
