Most jobs for computer scientists require a master’s degree in computer science or a related field. Maximize your options for employment as a computer scientist -- learn more about our Master of Science in Computer Science (100% online or on campus delivery) or Data Science concentration at our upcoming webinar on July 22 at 1 pm.  Register today! 


Computer Science is one of the fastest growing job fields and permeates almost all industries. Every field has a need for computer science integration, and our graduates find work in many different sectors. In fact, Money Magazine recently rated "Software Engineer" as the most desirable job in America. In addition to Software Engineer, computer science graduates can get positions as Software Developers, Computer Systems Analysts, Data Analysts, and Data Scientists.

The master's degree program is designed for students from various backgrounds who are committed to enhancing their existing knowledge, earning advanced degrees, preparing for advanced professional positions, or embarking upon new career paths. In order to apply for admission into the M.S. in Computer Science program, applicants must have the equivalent of a 4-year bachelors degree.

The master's program in computer science is composed of both fundamental and advanced courses. Fundamental courses are core courses which provide a solid theoretical foundation for advanced study. The courses are offered both online and on campus. On campus courses are mainly offered in the evenings with some day classes during the summer. Earn 33 credits in the master's degree program and 34 credits in the concentration in Data Science. Most students finish in two years, but students have up to six years for completion.

Degree candidates have the opportunity to study a variety of topics such as object-oriented systems development, graphics, networks and database systems. Our program provides our students the opportunity to develop marketable technical skills for the quickly evolving information-based society.
