FSU’s College of Criminology and Criminal Justice and Department of Computer Science have teamed up to offer a new Computer Criminology Degree. Computer criminology includes both how to use computers to facilitate the study of crime and the study of how crimes are accomplished through the use of computers.

Information-related crime, cyber-forensics, and computer/network security are significant issues that affect all levels of business, government, and academia and have grown in importance as most organizations link their networked computer environments to the Internet. Students graduating with this major will have the education necessary to fill the pressing need for information technology specialists who can address these issues.
