Combined B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science programs
Computer Science classroom
To complete the Master's degree in Computer Science, the following is possible:
US students: In order to complete the B.S. and M.S. degrees in as little as 4.5 years, students must have completed all prerequisite mathematics courses (and passed the math placement tests upon arrival on campus). Some summer session courses may be necessary to complete the degrees in 4.5 years.
International students: Have a choice of taking all B.S. and M.S. courses on campus (and paying in full), or working up to two years in a US company as part of the Curricular Practical Training (CPT) requirement for the Masters degree. Students who choose the CPT requirement can complete their on-campus courses for the B.S. and M.S. in about 4 years, and then finish the Masters degree through Distance Education courses during CPT over the next 1-2 years. The Bachelors degree program does NOT include financial aid through Curricular Practical Training (internship), and is therefore a full pay program. The Masters degree can be financed through the Computer Professionals Loan.
US students: ~4.5 years on campus = B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science
International Students: ~4 years on campus + up to 2 years of working for an IT company in the US + Distance Education = B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science
There are two options leading to the M.S. in Computer Science: the B.S. in Math + M.S. in Computer Science, and the B.S. in Computer Science + M.S. in Computer Science.
