Computer and cybercrime schools in Louisiana train students to mitigate cyber-related crimes including identity theft, corporate information theft, and network security attacks. Cybercrimes have risen drastically over the last decade and are no longer fringe underground criminal activities that affect very few people. Criminals use sophisticated tactics and technologies which leads to law enforcement agencies needing qualified employees to fight these crimes. Degrees are typically two-year associate’s and four-year bachelor’s. Major courses include network security, digital media analysis, computer forensics, and ethics. Students interested in this major should look for a program with an internship that provides an opportunity for the student to put their knowledge to use in a real-world environment.
