    Well what is the most interesting depends on what interests you. In terms of the syllabus, most computing degrees start off with a similar curriculum and then branch off into their specialties later on.

    If you can't find anything on the university's website, then drop them an email asking for more information on the syllabus.

    Security is a massive growth industry so I would imagine this would be very good on the job prospects front, not so sure about forensics.

    A computer security course will involve a little bit of forensics. A computer security degree will enable you to apply for forensics jobs as well as security jobs; less so the other way around.
