Forensic Information Science and Technology
The Department of Legal Informatics and Forensic Science at Hallym University has been expanded and restructured into the Department of Forensic Information Science and Technology. Since its establishment in 2015 as the only program in Korea focused on training digital forensics experts through English-based lectures, the Faculty of Global Integrated Studies has produced many graduates in the field of digital forensics. In response to the increasing global demand in the areas of criminal psychology, CSI, and digital forensics, the Faculty operated a convergence major in police science and forensic investigation from 2021. Based on the proven success of these advanced majors, the Department of Forensic Information Science and Technology was newly established in 2023.
Starting from the 2024 academic year, the Department of Forensic Information Science and Technology at Hallym University will admit 40 students each year. The program aims to train these students to address complex issues arising in a rapidly changing, AI-driven society and to lead advancements in modern forensic science through the utilization of AI data.
In the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and big data, represented by technologies like ChatGPT, there is a greater demand for individuals who can better utilize AI over those with passive and structured knowledge.
The Department of Forensic Information Science and Technology provides an educational curriculum that not only covers police and investigation-related subjects specialized by the faculty, but also offers advanced courses in applied AI technology, information security, and security policies. Students will develop interdisciplinary skills and technical expertise that will allow them to enter not only the fields of IT-related crimes and cyber investigations as part of the police, but also areas like corporate auditing, digital platform companies, information security, and personal data protection.
