Project Option

The following is a sample schedule for this degree – your actual schedule may vary.

Meet with your advisor and review the class schedule before confirming your schedule.

Project Option, 30 hours total: Includes 3 to 6 credit hours of CSC 798 Research in Computer Science.  

Comprehensive examination

A written comprehensive exam is required for students who do not complete a thesis. There are no credit hours associated with the exam.

The examination is taken after most of the course work has been completed, and is written and evaluated by the graduate faculty in Computer Science. The examination may include comprehensive questions in Computer Science and questions specific to the area of study chosen by the student.

Note: The sample degree plan below assumes a background equivalent to a computer science degree from an accredited university. Students who lack background in core areas of computer science may be required to take undergraduate courses before starting graduate study and may be required to take selected graduate courses as part of their degree plans.

The following degree plan is based on the graduate catalog.
