Students with an undergraduate degree in computer science must complete nine courses. Admitted students with an undergraduate degree in a field other than computer science must complete twelve courses.
The minimum residency requirement is three semesters.
Master of Arts in Computer Science for Non-Majors
New for the fall 2015 semester, the master of arts in computer science for non-majors offers students with a background in liberal arts or science the skills they need to make a career change into the computer industry.
Designed for non-computer science majors, this degree is a two-year program. Students must complete twelve courses, which include four core courses and eight electives in areas such as distributed computing, big data, machine learning, and computational linguistics.
