MS COMPUTER SCIENCE

Do you already have an undergraduate degree in computer science? Southern has a unique masters program in computer science, when combined with our ABET-accredited undergraduate program can be completed in a total of five years. The proposed program will have two emphases: general computer science and embedded systems. This is a general purpose masters degree aimed at improving the typical 4-year graduate’s skills and qualifications in the workplace. It is intended that the courses will be offered in the late afternoon/early evening, thus allowing working students to attend classes. Those having already completed a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science will take two years to complete the program.
