M.S. Computer Science

The M.S. Computer Science program offers students advanced computer science knowledge with four core courses in algorithms, operating systems, theory, and software engineering. In consultation with their advisor, students can tailor the rest of the program to some extent based on their own interests. A project or thesis is required.

M.S. program applicants are required to show proof of completion of certain undergraduate prerequisite courses in computer science and mathematics.

For detailed admission and program requirements, please refer to the University's Graduate Catalog.
