Degree Requirements

The department offers a dual Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Computer Science. The dual degree opportunity enables qualified students to enroll in graduate courses late in their undergraduate program and apply the coursework toward both the bachelor’s and master’s programs.

Students must be formally accepted into the dual degree program by the participating departments and colleges to be able to take graduate courses as an undergraduate. Additionally, acceptance into the dual program does not constitute admission to the master’s program. Students must fulfill regular graduate admissions requirements and apply for the master’s program following college processes.

Information about the dual program, including application instructions and program requirements, can be found at

Cooperative Education and Internship Programs

The department participates in the University’s Cooperative Education program, in which students rotate between being a full-time student and working in paid, full-time professional positions. Details are available on the department’s website. The department also encourages students to seek out relevant internships to enhance their preparation for careers related to Computer Science. We offer elective credit, to count towards Area H requirements, subject to department approval.

Graduation with Distinction in the Major

This unit offers undergraduate students with the opportunity to earn the designation of graduation with distinction in the major. Please contact the undergraduate director for the specific criteria for this honor.
