Cybersecurity Systems Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: List of Majors, Minors, Certificates and Special Programs

The minor in Cybersecurity Systems is an interdisciplinary minor that facilitates the students’ intellectual immersion into the core curriculum by providing cases for direct application of ethics, analysis, and technical skills, and requiring that the students be able to communicate about their analysis, conclusions, and  ecommended priorities. The topics studied in cybersecurity expose students to questions of privacy rights, responsibility when security fails, ethics of storing data insecurely and of using one’s skills to penetrate system defenses. The case studies experienced by students will require decisions and justifications that draw directly from the ethical frameworks they study in the core.

  • BAIS 359 Hardware, Software, and Security 
  • BAIS 459 Introduction to Cyber Security
  • BAIS 357 Telecommunications and Networking
