Radek, what jobs can you get with a computer forensics degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with a computer forensics degree?
The outlook is good for those majoring in computer forensics. Fortunately, there is no shortage of computer technology, and unfortunately, there is no shortage of crime, so many agencies and companies need people who can search computers and analyze digital data for evidence.
While the majority of criminal forensics majors do go to work for law enforcement at some level, this is not necessarily the only option. Insurance companies, financial advising firms, and law firms often employ computer forensics graduates, as does the government. If you’ve got the skills and you enjoy a good mystery, your job prospects are good!
It might be worth noting that many computer forensics jobs will require a criminal background check and some may even require a security clearance.
