Champlain College's Computer & Digital Forensics program is the leading destination in the country for students who want to enter this exciting field.
How do you search for evidence on confiscated devices or investigate the cloud for data breaches? What happens when a multi-national network is compromised? How are drug traffickers using unexpected platforms to communicate? Each technological advancement brings new threats and criminal enterprises.
Learn to unlock these secrets, preserve evidence, and uphold the law. At Champlain, your computer forensics training begins in your first semester.
Beginning Fall 2025, this major will referred to as Digital Forensics.
LEADING INSTITUTE FOR DIGITAL FORENSICS
Gain unparalleled experience working in the Senator Leahy Center for Digital Forensics & Cybersecurity, Champlain's fully-equipped, state-of-the-art, digital forensics laboratory.
With multimillion-dollar grants and contracts from the Department of Justice, the Department of Defense, and the Secret Service, the Leahy Center offers undergraduate students a unique chance to conduct industry-significant research with peers and faculty.
Champlain students don't just play the game, they design it: our students help create the Capture the Flag competition at the annual Magnet User Summit.
You'll have the opportunity to attend national conferences on digital forensics. You may even be invited to present your research at important industry events such as OSDFCon (the Open Source Digital Forensics Conference) and DFRWS (the Digital Forensic Research Workshop Conference).

Employers are so impressed with our students' work that some have moved their headquarters to the Burlington area—or opened new offices here—specifically to hire Champlain digital forensics students and graduates.
