The program provides preparation for students to obtain entry-level positions in the field of cybersecurity and computer crime deterrence. It also provides preparation and assistance to students for successful transfer to other institutions of higher education. It provides essential skills required to gain and to maintain employment at entry level positions as computer crime investigators, computer security specialists, and federal law enforcement officers. This new program combines elements of both NVCC’s Criminal Justice and Computer Information Systems programs to offer students a strong grounding in understanding the investigative nature of cybersecurity in the criminal justice realm as well as gaining technical skills in computer science networking and programming.
