MS in Computer Science (30-36 credits) View Details


Admission Requirements

  • GPA: 3.00
  • Those without undergraduate computer science background are required to take CSCI 201, CSCI 220, and MATH 271, and preparatory courses CSCI 591, CSCI 592, and CSCI 593.
  • Those deemed to have inadequate preparation, or those whose ability to perform well at the graduate level is in doubt, are required to take preparatory courses or test out of CSCI 591, CSCI 592, and CSCI 593.

Notes

  • A course may not be used to satisfy more than one requirement.
  • Students who are required to take preparatory classes (CSCI 591, CSCI 592 and CSCI 593) must complete the courses with grades of B or higher. Failure to do so will render them ineligible to continue in the program.
  • A student who successfully completes a course may not afterwards take, for credit, any prerequisite to that course.
