This program is designed to accommodate students with no prior programming experience as well as those who already hold an undergraduate degree in computer science. All applicants will be expected to demonstrate that they have completed a baccalaureate degree prior to enrolling in the program.
Students entering with an adequate background in computer science must complete 30 credit hours of coursework as outlined below. Students with a background other than computer science may need to complete up to 12 additional credits of core courses. Any of the four required core courses may be waived on the basis of appropriate undergraduate or graduate courses, subject to the approval of the Computer Science Graduate Admissions Coordinator. Only courses with grades of B or better may be used for waiver purposes.
Students with deficiencies in programming, networks, or operating systems will be required to take one or more of the core courses listed above, in addition to the regular courses for the MS Cybersecurity and Networks degree.
