The five-course Certificate in Cybersecurity and Human Behavior focuses on the human and social elements of cyberattacks and cybersecurity. In addition to obtaining a broad understanding of cybercrime and cyber-investigations, students will learn how technology has impacted various other crimes, such as organized crime, terrorism, hate crimes, and white-collar crime. Through the core and elective courses, students will be introduced to criminological concepts, such as theories of criminal behavior, organizational structures and group dynamics, decision-making and adaptation, and to law enforcement and legal responses to cyberattacks.
The certificate will emphasize experiential learning and the development of critical thinking, writing, and oral communication skills, which will prepare students to be strong contributors to the cybersecurity discourse and community. Completing the certificate enhances student's candidacy for positions in cybersecurity by demonstrating understanding of the relevance of the human factor in cyberattacks and cybersecurity.
This program is open to any matriculated undergraduate students. Certificates are awarded only at the time of completion of the bachelor's degree and cannot be awarded either as a stand-alone program of study or after completion of the first bachelor's degree.
