The Department of Computer and Information Science at Fordham University is undergoing a rapid expansion in both its undergraduate and graduate programs, and Fordham’s administration is committed to increasing the department’s local and national distinction in research and science education. The department offers undergraduate programs at Fordham’s Rose Hill campus (in the Bronx) and Lincoln Center campus (in Manhattan), and graduate programs in Computer Science, Data Analytics, and Cybersecurity at its Lincoln Center campus. Fordham University has been designated by National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE).
