Programs of Study

Overview of MPCS Programs

The Masters Program in Computer Science offers the following Programs of Study to accommodate students with a wide range of backgrounds and interests. All of our programs (with the exception of the Pre-Doctoral MS in Computer Science) can be completed either Full-Time or Part-Time.

The Joint MBA/MPCS program meets today’s leading tech companies’ cross-functional demands of new employees. Technology permeates everything, and true innovation requires the ability to understand and navigate both business and technology. Our joint program with UChicago’s Booth School of Business enables students to earn both an MBA and an MS in Computer Science.

​This program is a 12-course research-oriented masters program for students who want to explore computer science research. The Pre-Doc program is for full-time students with a CS background starting in the Autumn quarter.

Introductory coursework in programming and math (called immersion classes) are available to any admitted MPCS student. Students can complete one or both of these classes before beginning coursework in the MS in Computer Science Program.
