COMPUTER FORENSICS CURRICULUM

At Champlain College we design our online programs for working adults, and there's nowhere this is more evident than in our curricula. The computer forensics bachelor's program is comprised of both professional and general education courses that provide foundational knowledge and immediate take-aways that can be applied on the job.

Whether it's PHIL 340, Ethics in the Professions, that will help you to formulate arguments, practice deliberation and assess the implications of decisions across your organization or CFDI 340, Digital Forensics Analysis, where you will learn advanced topics and methodologies for examining digital forensic evidence using both theory and hands-on exercises, you will find courses that are focused, relevant, and delivered in an accelerated 7-week format.

In addition, we've designed this program so you can earn a certificate in a chosen area of specialization in computer forensics and digital investigations before you've earned your degree. Talk to your academic advisor for more details.
