Hello all, 
I am currently attending a SUNY, and majoring in Computer Forensics in
Long Island (Farmingdale Institute of Technology).  There is a
possibility I may have to move to Atlanta, GA in within the next year
or two.  I am looking for colleges or universities that offer BA, MS,
and/or Ph.D in Computer Forensics, or other aptly named field (some
colleges call it "Security Systems.")
I am NOT looking for ONLINE colleges, of which there seem to be many,
and are of little value, or those colleges that just offer Computer
Science/MIS degrees.  I am open to colleges and Universities within a
50 mile radius, as I now drive 100 miles round trip each day to go to
class after work.  Thank you, and I hope I have given enough

Hello Rainbow, 
Thank you for working on this question.
I do not want technical colleges, as they are not actual universities,
but more like trade schools/business schools (e.g.DeVry, Katherine
Gibbs, etc.)

I presume this is turning out to be quite an usually I
research these things myself.

Thank you.

Georgia Tech is right in Atlanta and has a heck of a good reputation in this field:

I don't see a bachelor's degree specific to computer security, but I'm
sure there are an ample supply of relevant courses just the same.

Is that the sort of school you're looking for?

Hi Paf, 
Yes, that is probably where I shall apply to.  However, if you can
find others with "Information Security", I shall prompty dispatch a
$15.00 tip.

Hi Paf, 

Would you like to search for additional "Information Security" schools
in Atlanta, GA,(for additional $15.00 tip)
or post the Georgia Tech as an answer (for original $20.00 fee)?

Thank you.

Rated:5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for getting back to me.  It turns out there are a few other
possibilities for you in and around Atlanta.

Southern Polytechnic has an Information Security program that seems to
fit the bill:
Southern Polytechnic
Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT) concentration on
Information Security and Assurance

Georgia State University has a very strong Computer Science
Department.  I didn't see a security major per se, but there are a lot
of relevant courses and faculty expertise:
Georgia State University 
Department of Computer Information Systems

The University of West Georgia is also in the area, though I didn't
see a security focus to their computer science offerings:
University of West Georgia
Department of Computer Science 

Hope that does the trick, but let me know if there's anything else you need.

Best of luck,


search strategy -- Searched several college databases for computer
science programs in and around Atlanta.
