These degree options blend theoretical and practical instruction (including hands-on laboratory components) to give graduates the knowledge and flexibility they’ll need to pursue computer-related careers.
Expand your career opportunities by gaining a deeper understanding of computer science theory and getting hands-on experience.
The master’s programs in computer science will dive deeper into computer science theory and include hands-on laboratory components that provides a broad spectrum of information with business, industry, education and further graduate study applicability.
Graduate level degrees in Computer Science are offered as a Master of Science and as a Master of Education.
The Master of Science in Computer Science program is a 30-hour graduate-level program comprised of computer science courses including Advanced Data Structures, Programming Language Structures, Software Engineering, Computer Networking, Relational Database and Graph Theory. To graduate from this program, the student will work with an advisor to complete a thesis complementary to his or her coursework.
The Master of Education in Computer Science requires 12 semester hours of graduate-level education courses, 18 hours of graduate-level computer science core courses, and the completion of an oral examination before graduation. Upon graduation, students should be prepared with the leadership skills necessary to pass their own computer science knowledge on to others in a classroom setting.
The Master of Education in Computer Science is a Secondary Subject Endorsement area
The student entering the Computer Science, M.Ed. program must have 12 hours of undergraduate courses in computer science, including CSC 216 and CSC 314.
The applicant must meet all requirements for admission to the Graduate School. In addition to these requirements, the student should hold a bachelor’s degree consisting of at least 18 hours of coursework in computer science, the suitability of courses to be determined by the graduate faculty. The applicant must already have earned credit for courses equivalent to CSC 116, CSC 216, and CSC 314.
