Accelerated Program Notes:

The Accelerated model for this program is designed for the MS Computer Science. 

UCM students having completed at least 9 hours of computer science courses above the 1000 level with a major GPA of at least 3.00 may consult with their faculty advisor and complete a school application to declare the accelerated BS/MS major in computer science. Prior to beginning the graduate portion of the program, students in the accelerated program will need to apply to the UCM Graduate School for formal admission to the Accelerated BS/MS program.

Accelerated student may be eligible to include the following courses as overlap between the undergraduate and graduate programs.  They would be taken at the Graduate level (5XXX):

CS 4120 - Advanced Applications Programming in Java (3)  

CS 4600 - Database Theory and Applications (3)  

CYBR 4820 - Introduction to Information Assurance (3)  

SE 4930 - Software Testing and Quality Assurance (3)
