The Master’s program in computer science provides an opportunity to explore the breadth and depth of advanced knowledge in the discipline. Computer science programs provide a well-rounded education that teaches computing principles and fundamentals relevant to a career in cybersecurity.
Two program options are available to students: Master’s by Thesis (fewer courses and involves a more substantial research project) and Master’s by Course (more courses and includes a limited research component). Students must have a four-year bachelor’s degree or its equivalent (with at least a B average based on their last 20 half courses or equivalent).
Students of this program will learn about/develop skills in the following areas:
• Data security
• Ethical issues in computer science
• Computer networks
