Two tracks are offered for the M.S. in Computer Science:
Candidates admitted into Track 1 will have a bachelor’s degree in computer science or management information systems and will begin their program with the required core courses.
Candidates without a bachelor’s degree in computer science or management information systems will be admitted into Track 2 and required to demonstrate proficiency in computer programming and foundations by passing the competency waiver exam or completing two preparation courses: Computer Science 601 and 605 or their equivalents. (See Computer Science Background Requirements and Competency Equivalencies for further details.)
