CSU Adds New Degree Offerings

CSU is pleased to announce four new degree offerings to help you expand your career potential!

The bachelor’s in information systems security offers experience in systems analysis, programming, web development, networking, databases and IT infrastructures. CSU also offers this degree with a concentration in homeland security. This track will focus on providing students with the knowledge of current legal requirements for information and systems security as well as the ability to identify the potential threats/risks/weaknesses in the IT infrastructure.

The fire administration degree with a new concentration in fire investigation provides courses that focus on advanced fire administration, community risk reduction and firefighter safety. This specific concentration provides the academic foundation for technical and scientific skills needed in the development of highly qualified investigators.

The criminal justice administration degree can prepare entry-level and seasoned professionals from diverse backgrounds in the theoretical foundations, knowledge, skills and practices of criminal justice administration inclusive of law enforcement, courts and corrections. The new concentration in arson investigation focuses on technical and scientific skills needed in the development of highly qualified investigators.

Interested applicants may apply for these programs now. Existing students who are interested in these programs may submit a change of program request and the fee will be waived.

    A Master of Science in Information Systems degree needs to be added to CSU’s degree offering. This would be a program that I would enroll in. The program would need to cover programming languages like C# or C++, Java, PHP and SQL. This would be a strong addition to the current offerings.

    1. Scott Morgan

      I agree. It would be very well received. It would also be fantastic if the MBA had a Technology Management concentration.

  2. Mike R.

    A Graduate Certificate in Criminal Justice (15-18 credits) would be an excellent addition, especially, for career professionals and junior college instructors.

      Hi Carlisle, I agree, an offering for Ph.D. would be awesome. I would like to see one in Environmental Management.

    2. James Vickers

      I would like to see doctorate programs offered by CSU in organizational leadership, management, public safety, and public administration.
