Business & CIS - Computer Information Systems
In order to obtain computer/digital forensics certification, students must complete all coursework with a minimum grade of "C". Class offerings are based on registrations (first come first serve) and are typically offered each semester.

Certification will take roughly two years to complete. Computer Forensics I must be taken first as this course establishes the foundation for computer forensics, followed by Computer Forensics II. The remainder of the courses can be taken based on offerings.

The final course is Capstone where an overview of computer/digital forensics is conducted to include professional affiliations and job placement requirements and opportunities. Students will also be assigned a case to work from start to finish, to include writing a comprehensive forensic report and preparing evidence media. Capstone will finish out with students going through a mock trial where they will testify as to their findings before experienced, working attorneys specializing in computer/digital forensics.
