B. Language, intermediate level and optional studies

1. Language studies 0–5 ECTS
All foreign students whose native language is not Finnish must pass Finnish language courses (KIFF0003) worth at least 5 credits. All students with Finnish education background (suomenkielinen peruskoulu) are excused for the course and must instead pass virkamiesruotsi (KIRU2321 and KIRU2341) either in their BSc. or MSc. Degree (Valtion virkamieheltä kaksikielisellä kielialueella vaadittava kielitaito siitä annetun lain (424/2003) 6§:n 1 momentin mukaan.) Courses are arranged by the Language Centre at the University of Turku (see the Language Centre study guide, or website
2. Intermediate level studies in the major subject 0–25 ECTS
are meant for students whose Bachelor' studies do not fulfill the prerequisites for advanced studies in their selected information security specialization area. Since the intermediate level studies are mainly given in Finnish, these studies are based on literature, on which an examination must be passed.
3. Optional studies 10–40 ECTS
The optional studies complete the student's expertise profile in the selected specialization and major subject. Depending on the student's specialization area, these studies are negotiated when preparing the personal study plan for the student. Also practical training (max 6 sp) can be included in this section. The optional studies may also include a large group project (10-20 sp) in the student's specialization (Capstone project). The optional studies are planned to build a special information security expertise profile to the student and may for example include additional courses in the selected major subject, or courses in mathematics, communication systems, embedded computing, computer science, software engineering, management and/or innovation and business creation. In the Networked Systems Security track, degree requirements state that studies in category B must always include a minor subject of at least 20 sp. Examples of useful optional studies and minor subjects include:
Information Security Management 25 op
Students can extend their Information security management studies to a minor subject by taking this module. This minor subject may not be available every year. Further details need to be discussed with the study supervisor. Note that Special Course on Information Security Management (course code TJS8) is a special course with annually different content, and it is possible to include several instances of it in the minor subject module. The specification given here is for the 2014-2015 academic year and it may change for 2015-2016. In case of changes, the minor subject is planned together with the study supervisor in the student’s personal study plan.
