Program Overview

Program Description:

The online Master of Science in Computer Science (MCS) program is designed to appeal to a broad range of individuals. The program balances theory with practice and offers an extensive set of traditional and state-of-the-art courses. The program is designed to appeal to students from various backgrounds, and also provides the foundation necessary to continue the study of computer science at the doctoral level. Whether you are a computer professional seeking to expand your understanding of computer science, or an individual with an undergraduate degree outside of the field wishing to broaden your knowledge in computing, we are ready to help you reach your academic goals.

Because we encourage students to personalize their course of study, the online MCS degree provides the necessary flexibility to accommodate your academic and career objectives. You may specialize your MCS degree in the area of networking, data management, software engineering, cybersecurity, intelligent systems, computer animation and gaming, or software applications development. You may also choose a thesis option which requires two semesters of study under the direction of an instructor, in which the student gains a deeper understanding of an area of current research.
