About this course
The minimum background expected of any student entering the M.S.C.S. program is coursework equivalent to the following:
- One year of calculus ( MATH 155and MATH 156).
- One course in probability and statistics (STAT 215).
- Knowledge of introductory programming in a high-level programming language (STAT 215).
Students not meeting these minimum requirements will be required to take the equivalent coursework before applying to the M.S.C.S. program.
Students entering without a four-year bachelor’s degree in computer science may have additional deficiencies in their coursework which must be addressed before beginning the regular M.S.C.S. program. These students will be initially admitted with provisional status, and required to remove these deficiencies during their first 18 hours of coursework.
