Bachelor Degree in Digital Criminology

Digital Crimes such as fraud, computer terrorism, data theft, and technical espionage have been on the rise in recent years. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Report (2019), the demand for computer forensics analysts is expected to grow by 32 percent by 2028. At the current rate of growth, it is estimated that more than 35,500 jobs will be added for professionals possessing specialized education and technical training in digital forensics.

Seeking innovative ways to prepare our students for 21st century career readiness, the department is set to launch a four-year interdisciplinary classroom-based digital criminology degree program. Collaborating with the Purdue Polytechnic Institute (PPI), this degree program will combine criminological theories and understandings on human behaviors, with the sciences of cybersecurity as an investigative tool for mapping digital crimes.

Students, in consultation with the College of Liberal Arts academic advisors, assume the responsibility for organizing their programs and satisfying their degree requirements.
