Combining Scholarship in International Relations Together with Technical Expertise in Information Technology
How have nation-states and other actors used cyber technology to collect information and to spread misinformation? How can we protect against it? Dornsife College and the Viterbi School of Engineering have collaborated to create a major that can help prepare students to engage these timely challenges and opportunities.
This interdisciplinary major requires 51-54 units in total: 12 at the lower-division level and 39-42 at the upper-division level.
During Spring 2020, INCO students presented their cyber crime knowledge to perspective employers across the globe in a virtual mock trial. Read more about it on USC News.
