Each student will be assigned an academic advisor when she enters the M.S. in Computer Forensics program. Students should review their admission document to find out their advisor. For students who transferred from another program, the CFRS program office can provide the name of their advisor. There is also an up-to-date list of academic advisors posted outside the CFRS program office.
The academic advisor plays a key role for a student’s success in the program. Students are recommended to review their plan of study with their academic advisor and have this plan formally approved by their advisor.
Students may contact their advisors by phone or e-mail or meet them in person during their office hours.
Choosing Courses and Plan of Studies
Choosing the right classes is of the outmost importance. When selecting courses, students must take into consideration both the requirements of the program and their technical interests. It is strongly recommended that students prepare a plan of study detailing their course selections early in the program. This plan should be discussed with and approved by the student’s academic advisor.
The requirements for the MS in Computer Forensics are published in the university catalog. The official version of the catalog is maintained by the university. The catalog and the program requirements may change slightly from year to year and archived versions of the catalog are available. The version of the catalog that applies to a given student is generally the version that was active when the student started his degree program.
