The assurance of information during transmission or while in storage and the security of critical information infrastructures are a major responsibility of government and the private sector. Securing computers and computer networks, and conducting investigations of cybercrimes and forensic analysis of digital devices are principal methods of securing cyberspace. Through a multidisciplinary approach integrating criminology, criminal justice, economic crime, and computer science, students will be prepared for entry level positions either in cybercrime investigation and computer forensics or the security of information stored in or transmitted by computers and computer networks.

Utica College offers an on-ground undergraduate program in Cybersecurity; there is also an undergraduate online program for transfer students. The online BS in Cybersecurity degree is a completion program, which means that students must have an Associate’s degree from an accredited institution prior to enrolling in the program. Students transferring into this program without an Associate’s degree, but who have at least 57 transferable credits from a four-year institution may be considered. Additionally, students who show academic promise and don’t meet the prior 2 requirements may also be considered. However all students must meet the New York State Education Department’s mandated liberal arts requirements. A success coach will create an academic plan for students to ensure all core, liberal arts and graduation requirements are satisfied.
