University of Louisville’s Master of Science in Computer Science online program is designed for students who have earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science/computer engineering (CECS) but it is also available to applicants who have earned other degrees. More than ever before, professionals with non-computer science educational background are seeking to earn computer science credentials at the graduate level for career change or advancement opportunities.
To be admitted, students must have a technical degree or relevant experience. Non-computer science candidates often need to complete undergraduate prerequisites before applying to the master’s program.
Important Note: The actual number and type of prerequisites is determined on a case-by-case basis, based on candidate’s official transcripts and evaluation of transferable credit. Also, the length of the program will depend on the number of prerequisites needed for the completion of graduate coursework.
