Five-Year Bachelor of Science/Master of Science Programs


The five-year Bachelor of Science/Master of Science programs are designed to result in a baccalaureate degree in Computer and Information Sciences or Interactive Media and a master's degree in Computer Information Sciences, Information Systems Engineering and Management, or Learning Technologies and Media Systems, respectively.

The student who demonstrates exceptional academic performance in the undergraduate Bachelor of Science program in Computer and Information Sciences or Interactive Media may be eligible to participate in one of the following accelerated dual-degree programs. These programs facilitate the student completing both degree programs in five years rather than the usual six.

Bachelor of Science Program Master of Science Program
Computer and Information Sciences with an Individualized Concentration   Computer Information Sciences with a concentration in Scientific Computing
Computer and Information Sciences with an Individualized Concentration   Computer Information Sciences with a concentration in Cyber Security
Computer and Information Sciences with an Individualized Concentration   Information Systems Engineering and Management with an Individualized Concentration
Interactive Media with a Concentration in Advanced Media Production   Learning Technologies and Media Systems with an Individualized Concentration

The following standards for admission to the program must be met by the end of the first semester of the third year of study:

  • completion of at least 75 semester hours toward the Bachelor of Science degree with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.25;
  • a minimum grade point average of 3.50 in all computer and information sciences and mathematics courses attempted; and
  • completion of all computer and information sciences Core requirements for the bachelor of science degree.

The student should complete and submit the Graduate Education Application for Admission when 75 semester hours have been earned. Required supporting documents include: current academic transcript and a recommendation from the student's academic advisor.

In order to remain in the program, the student must maintain: 1) a minimum 3.25 cumulative grade point average and 2) a minimum 3.50 computer and information science and mathematics grade point average.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Computer and Information Sciences or Interactive Media is conferred when the student has completed the undergraduate requirements (expected to be the end of the fourth year). During this four-year period, the student is subject to the undergraduate policies, tuition rates, financial aid regulations, academic policies and eligible for the student services described within the undergraduate education pages of this Catalog.

The Master of Science degree in Computer Information Sciences, Information Systems Engineering and Management, or Learning Technologies and Media Systems is conferred when the student has completed the graduate requirements (expected to be the end of the fifth year). During this period, the student is subject to the graduate policies, tuition rates, financial aid regulations, academic policies, and eligible for the student services described within the graduate education pages of this Catalog.
