Cyber Criminology (Criminology)


ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2023 and after)

*Please Note: Face-to-face/in-person instruction of this program is available ONLY at the main campus in Tallahassee, FL. This program is NOT available via Online/Distance Learning.*

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and multicultural requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

The interdisciplinary undergraduate degree in Cyber Criminology will teach students how to use computers to facilitate the study of crime and how crimes are accomplished through the use of computers. Students must earn a “C” or better in CCJ3011 and CCJ4700 and a C minus or better in all other courses that count toward the major.
Students with more than four grades below “C minus“ in Cyber Criminology major coursework and/or perquisites will not be permitted to continue in the major.

Note: Major code determines graduation requirements and the college within which the student graduates.
