The concentration will be available for students who want to pursue a Computer Science degree with additional knowledge of cyber security but prefer not to pursue the highly focused B.S. in Cyber Security. This concentration requires 9 hours of 400-level cyber security courses in addition to all the courses required for a B.S. in Computer Science. Students who successfully complete this concentration will have the designation indicated on their transcripts.  The list of Cyber Security courses can be found below.
