Computer Science

The Master of Science in Computer Science program is a terminal professional degree program. The degree is based on coursework and, for those not currently employed full-time, an internship. The program does not require research, a thesis, or comprehensive examinations. The GRE examination is recommended, but not required, for admission. The GRE examination is required for assistantship applications. The program is structured to make it both convenient and productive for students to enroll on a part-time basis.

To complete the Master's degree, one core course must be taken from each of the following four core areas:

  • Advanced Operating Systems and Computer Architecture
  • Artificial Intelligence and Data Management Systems
  • Networks and Security
  • Algorithms and Models of Computation

During the Pathway program, international students may choose to complete one of the core areas while improving their English skills.
