MS Specializations

Updated on Fri, 12/14/2012 - 12:02pm

Specializations are advanced study opportunities that allow focus on a particular area of computer science. Specializations fall under the Plan II option. With a specialization, students take 15 hours in the area of specialization and 21 hours of other computer science courses, for a total of 36 hours. We presently offer M.S. specializations in four areas:

  • Bioinformatics
  • Computer Graphics
  • Parallel and Distributed Computing

Please see each specialization's webpage for details.

A certificate in Computer Forensics is also available. This certificate requires some extra courses in Justice Sciences that do not count towards the MS degree. The forensics certificate is administered independently from the MS program, and the interested student should refer to the computer forensics certificate program website for further information.
