Computer Science Graduate Program


We are a recognized national leader in the area of bioinformatics and computational sciences. 

Dedicated to the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and their application.


Master of Science (M.S.)

A two-year degree program with a thesis/non-thesis option.

Computer Science B.S./M.S. Accelerated Program (4+1)

Computer science is as a field with critical workforce needs. In fact, the U.S. Department of Labor has predicted a critical shortage of skilled computer scientists in the next five to 10 years. As workforce demands for highly skilled computer scientists grow, especially in the areas of software development, data analysis, computer networks and security, the accelerated master’s program will enable you to leap into the highly skilled workforce. Through this program, you will finish both your bachelor's and your master's degree in only five years.

Up to nine credits applied toward the B.S. program may be used to satisfy graduate credits. Some restrictions apply:

  • You must apply to, and be admitted to, the accelerated program prior to taking courses to be credited toward the accelerated program
  • Only courses taken at your home institution are eligible for dual credit.
  • To fulfill the undergraduate required courses, you must take graduate courses on the same topic areas
