The Department of Computer Science offers an M.S. degree in computer science. The department also collaborates with the Mathematics department to offer a computer science emphasis within the mathematics Ph.D. program.
Students who successfully complete the Master's program will have acquired the ability to think critically, communicate effectively, problem-solve, remain current in the field, and apply discipline-specific knowledge. A mixture of practical and theoretical courses is included in our program, which prepares students both for professional positions in software development and for further graduate work in Computer Science.
Students are exposed to a variety of computing, programming and networking environments. Students have the opportunity to work closely with a faculty member on a thesis, professional project, or portfolio. The relatively small size of the program and the department allows for a great deal of personal contact with faculty.
Students with a degree in another field are welcome and prerequisite courses can often be taken simultaneously with required courses.
The graduate school has additional requirements for graduation, with associated deadlines. These requirements and deadlines are listed at the Graduate Resources page.
