CSCI 15
An Introduction to the Modern Internet Winter 2020

Class Details

This course is about the basics of the modern Internet: how it works, and how it is used in our daily lives. We will focus on issues of security and privacy. We will try to answer two main questions in this course: How is information transmitted online? Who has access to this information, and how do they use it? Students will learn about and discuss these topics based on readings and lectures, and will do a small number of hands-on projects during class. The final assessment will be a 10-page paper on a related topic. No background in computer science or programming is required or expected.
The Class: Format: lecture
Limit: 30
