Computer Science (M.S.)


Master of science degree

The M.S. degree in Computer Science  requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of graduate level course work. The degree program can take one of three forms: a report option requiring 30 hours including 2 credit hours of report and 1 credit hour of seminar; a thesis option requiring 30 hours including 6 credit hours of research; and a non-thesis/report option requiring 33 hours of computer science classes. An oral presentation is required for each option and original research is required for the thesis option.

Course work must include a course from each of the following areas:


The student must receive a grade of B or better for all classes assigned by the Graduate Studies Committee and for each course used to satisfy the following requirements.

Implementation:


Every student must successfully complete a significant implementation under the guidance of a faculty member. This will usually be done as a part of CIS 636, CIS 706, CIS 722 or CIS 690. The effort must be certified by a faculty member and the student must request this in writing at the beginning of the course.

Specialization:


Any course numbered CIS 800 or higher except seminar, projects, and research courses. No course may be used to satisfy more than one requirement.
