Overview

The Computer Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) major provides a foundation of study in the liberal arts, mathematics, management, and the sciences, as well as computer programming, digital forensics and information assurance. Students integrate knowledge from these disciplines to enter organizations with both practical, functional capabilities and an enterprise perspective. During Spring Semester sophomores CSIA majors must select from two available areas of specialization – Forensics or Information Assurance Management (students can successfully complete both by taking additional courses per semester). The curriculum of the major complies with the standards defined by the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) required by the National Information Assurance Training and Education Center (NIATEC).
