The Digital Forensics career program is designed for students who plan to enter the field of Data Recovery, Computer Forensic Investigation, or related fields. Major areas of study include criminal justices, computer forensics, network fundamentals and operating systems. This degree must be completed within four years because of constantly changing technology. Students who do not complete within four years will fall under the latest catalog. Students should always confer with advisors for specific requirements as these are subject to change. This A.A.S. program is a career degree, preparing students for the workforce after graduation.  However, students can opt to transfer to a four-year program rather than start a career, but should confer with advisors and transferring institutions for specific requirements.
