Begin Taking Your Master's in Digital Forensic Science As An Undergrad

Begin taking Master's level courses in Computer Digital Forensics while you are still an undergraduate with Champlain College's "4 + 1" combined Bachelor's/Master's degree program.

During your junior year, you can apply for Champlain's highly competitive Master of Science program in Digital Forensics Science.  Take courses alongside industry professionals who've been in the field for over ten years. Examine the mission of digital forensics from the perspectives of public and private sectors, including internal corporate investigations, policy auditing to third-party investigations and anti-terrorism information gathering — and discussing the imperatives of each. Learn how to use scripting languages for data analysis, and how to recover information  from PCs, mobile phones and embedded systems.

Champlain is the premier destination to study computer digital forensics in the country, and through this unique program, you will be able to take as many as four Master's level courses while completing your undergraduate degree—and the course credits count toward both your undergraduate and graduate degree requirements.
