School of Computing Masters Program


New Programs Available 

The School of Computing is excited to announce changes in our Master’s degree programs. Our current Master’s Degree in Computer and Information Sciences, with focus tracks in Computer Science or Information Systems, has been split into 2 separate degree programs. The School of Computing now has a Master’s Degree program in Computer Science and a Master’s Degree program in Information Systems.

While the Computer Science program has not changed, the Information Systems program has been redesigned from a traditional research focused program into a professional Master’s Degree program with a focus on software development.

We are also excited to announce that we have also added a completely new Master’s Degree program in Cybersecurity. This program will prepare students for the challenging and rewarding field of Cybersecurity.
