The Department of Computer Science has a Cybersecurity Focal Path that requires eleven courses. More information is found on this page.
A focal path is a selection of courses that a student can take to demonstrate they have fulfilled a set of courses the department has defined for that area of focus in computing. Unlike a second major or minor, it does not appear on the transcript. Once the courses are completed, the student can apply for a Letter of Completion from the department. Courses that count for the focal path can also count for any other major or minor requirement.
The Department of Computer Science is a National Center of Excellence in Cyber Defense (NCAE-CD). As part of the NCAE-CD program, we offer a Cybersecurity Focal Path that meets the standards defined by the NCAE program office.
