The Minor in Cybersecurity introduces students to the field of computer security. It provides a foundation in the fundamental computer science subjects that support the field. It also gives the student a sense of the breadth and depth of security systems and prepares them for industry or further study. The minor may be most relevant for students considering a career or postgraduate studies in the following areas: network security, application security, risk management, auditing and forensics.
Note: COMP 362 has prerequisite of COMP 122 (3), which has prerequisite of COMP 121 (3). These courses aren’t included in Minor, so if COMP 362 is desired to be taken in this section it will increase Minor’s unit total by 6 units.
