Five-Year Bachelor’s/ Master’s Degree – Computer Science (B.A./B.S.) – Computer Information Science (M.S.)

Students may earn either the B.A. or B.S. in Computer Science and the Master of Science in Computer Information Science (M.S. CIS) by participating in the five-year program. The student would satisfy the undergraduate Computer Science degree requirements for either the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science during their first four years at the University, earning a minimum of 120 undergraduate credits and maintaining a GPA of 3.0 or better. The student would then enter the Master of Science in Computer Information Science program. The M.S. CIS Program is composed of core, specialized electives, and free electives and/or capstone courses. Individual foundation courses may be waived for those students entering with the B.A. or B.S. For successful completion of the master’s degree, a student must earn 33 graduate credits (maintaining a GPA of 3.0 or better).
