Master's Program

The College of Technology offers an M.S. in Computer in Information Technology with a specialization in cyberforensics. All details about the M.S. degree including the admission procedures, course structure, faculty and other resources can be found here. Additional details of the M.S. program specific to the cyberforensics area of specialization are mentioned below.


For admission into the cyberforensics area of specialization, it is desirable but not mandatory for candidates to have completed either an undergraduate major in computer or information technology or an equivalent. Recognizing, however, that the interest as well as practical experience in cyberforensics may emerge from a wide variety of undergraduate backgrounds, the AOS will have a reasonably flexible policy concerning preparation required for admission, namely, that candidates lacking some of the prerequisites but otherwise well qualified may be admitted on the condition that they take certain additional prerequisite courses.


Curriculum requirements for the cyberforensics specialization include all the requirements of the M.S. in CIT degree, thesis option, with the added constraint that students need to complete 15 credit hours in core cyberforensics courses. The degree requirements for the cyberforensics specialization can be found at M.S. CIT Degree Requirements .
