Computer Science/CIS Dual Admission Program

Dual Admission – Computer Science

Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Computer Science or Computer Information Systems

The dual admission programs in computer science and computer information systems are offered to qualified freshmen and transfer students. The curriculum for both the undergraduate and master’s programs is consistent with the recommendations for a model curriculum in computer sciences/computer information systems as outlined by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM).

The Master of Science (M.S.) in computer science is designed to give students a thorough knowledge of the field and to provide an enduring foundation for future professional growth. The program blends theory and practice into a learning experience that develops skills applicable to complex real-world problems.

The Master of Science (M.S.) in computer information systems focuses on the technological foundations of computer information systems such as database systems, human-computer interaction, data and computer communications, computer security, computer graphics, system test and evaluation, and object-orientation. It is designed to give students a thorough knowledge of the field and to provide an enduring foundation for future professional growth. The program blends theory and practice into a learning experience that develops skills applicable to complex and real-world problems. Both programs offer professionals the opportunity to earn a master’s degree in 12 to 18 months, while continuing to work in their current positions.

Students wishing to earn a master’s degree in computer science must choose the undergraduate computer science major. Those wanting the master’s degree in computer information systems may choose either the computer science or the computer information systems undergraduate major.
