The MS degree program in computer science provides students with a deeper exploration of the theory and practice of computer science, preparing them for careers in industry. The MS degree program requires 30 credits of formal coursework, including either a thesis or project. The MS Thesis option allows students with an interest in computer science research to complete 24 credits of coursework plus six credits of faculty-supervised research, and concludes with the defense of a written thesis presenting the results of their original research. The project option allows students to pursue applications of their coursework within the context of a faculty-supervised project; this option requires the completion of 27 credits of coursework plus three credits of work on a faculty-supervised project. In either case, the MS in Computer Science in typically earned over a period of two academic years.
