Program Overview

Program Description:

The Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) is an intensive graduate program that prepares students in the area of knowledge-based data systems. The 30-hour online program begins with a strong foundation in databases, artificial intelligence and Web systems followed by specializations in data mining, data warehousing and distributed database systems. Once you complete the groundwork, you will move on to applying database and knowledge systems to areas such as software engineering and wireless and mobile systems.

Our program enables you to develop a balance of industry-relevant practical skills and experience that will enhance your professional development and future employment in the IT industry. The MSCS is for professionals in the IT industry as well as professionals working in traditionally non-computing fields, and for current undergraduate students interested in advancing their education. Students and professionals with bachelor's degrees in other disciplines can take a series of self-paced learning modules designed to help students meet the prerequisite program requirements in data structures and systems software.

What makes us different?  Concentrations in:  Database and Knowledge Systems.  Database and knowledge systems cover areas such as speech and vision recognition systems, expert systems, data storage systems, and information retrieval systems (i.e., online search engines). Our program combines both the technical aspects of data mining with the business aspects of knowledge management to create a unique and highly specialized program. Emphasizing the high-demand fields of data mining and data warehousing, the Georgia Southern Online Master of Science in Computer Science is one of a handful of such master's degree programs in the world.
