Computer Science Master's Degree


Our program offers a master of science in the field of computer science. This program is oriented toward software and is most appropriate for candidates interested in the design, analysis, and implementation of software programs.

Students must earn a grade of 'B-' or better in all courses that apply toward the degree. In addition, students who do not maintain a 3.00 grade-point average will be placed on academic probation according to campus policy. Graduate students enrolled in 400-level courses should expect more stringent grading standards and/or additional assignments. Courses taken on a credit/no credit basis will not count toward the degree.

While degree requirements evolve on a regular basis, students are allowed a degree of flexibility when determining their specific requirements. By default, students are held to the degree requirements specified at the time of enrollment. However, students may elect to hold themselves to a more recent set of requirements. Students are encouraged to retain the appropriate requirement-set and use it to monitor their academic progress.
