Online Computer Forensics Courses

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 degree program is comprised of online digital forensics courses, professional courses, and general education courses that provide foundational knowledge and immediate take-aways that can be applied on the job. These courses are focused, relevant, and most are delivered in an accelerated 7-week format. (Note: Select courses are 15 weeks long. Due to the complex nature of the content of some courses, the courses cannot be condensed into 7-week sessions.)

Earn a Certificate Along the Way

In addition, we've designed the BS in Computer Forensics degree program so you can earn a certificate in one of the following areas of specialization on the way to earning your degree: Computer Forensics & Digital Investigations, Cybersecurity, or Forensic Accounting.
