Computer Science

Five-Year Option

Get a bachelor's and master's degree in just five years!

The Department of Computer Science is excited to announce this new option for all incoming freshmen.

You can...

Complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) or Bachelor of Arts (Computer Studies)

and in the third and fourth years take one graduate level course in computing each semester that will count for 12 hours towards the general electives in your bachelor’s degree and also 12 hours towards your master’s degree.

In the fifth year, you take 24 hours (eight courses) of graduate courses to complete the master’s degree.

You may also delay graduating with the bachelor’s degree until the end of the fifth year, and then graduate with both the master’s and bachelor’s degrees at the same time. However, since every student’s situation is different, you should check with the Financial Aid Office before making this decision.
