Core courses include a programming sequence, an ethics course, a computer networking and system administration sequence, and foundation courses in computer and network security. Advanced courses allow students to design the focus of their information security course work.

Additional information

Cooperative education

Cooperative education is a required component of the major. Co-op enables students to work in a variety of organizations, from small- or medium-sized businesses to large international companies or law enforcement organizations, that require computer systems or computer networks. These may be security-centric businesses (law enforcement agencies, security auditors) to users of information technology (manufacturing companies, school districts, health care). 

Co-ops provide real-world experience and a competitive edge when applying for jobs after graduation. Typically, the first co-op occurs during the summer following the student's second year and second co-op occurs during the summer following the student's third year. Students must complete the co-op requirement prior to completing their course work.
