Masters Curriculum

Masters students may choose one of two options – the thesis option or the non thesis option. Both are 30 semester hour programs. The latter requires more coursework and, of course, does not require that a thesis be written. One might think of a thesis as being a “mini” PhD dissertation. MS non-thesis option students must, in their last term, submit to the CS Graduate Committee, a portfolio detailing all major activities in which they have participated as a result of their tenure in the program. This should include a SASS audit, resume, details of term papers, projects, etc.
