The Masters of Science in Computer Science program is designed for students who have a background in programming and/or computer science. The program includes both CS foundational courses and applied coursework. 

The key to getting the most out of your time commitment is to choose between full-time and part-time options depending on your other obligations. The full-time program allows a student to complete the program within one year, while the part-time program gives more flexibility for working students.

Full-time students are able to complete the 9-course MS in 9 months and the 12-course MS in 15 months, including a summer internship.

Course requirements for each program can be found here:

To view a complete list of course offerings, please visit the MPCS Course Catalog.

Students without a background in programming and/or Discrete Math should plan to start the program with one or both of our Immersion Classes. Immersion classes are available to any admitted MPCS student. 

To accommodate working professionals, the program may be taken on a full-time or part-time basis and all of our classes are held in the evenings in Hyde Park.
