The MS in Computer Science is available in accelerated format. The requirements are identical in the accelerated format, and all concentrations are available. The 4+1 combines undergraduate and graduate courses to allow students to complete a Master’s degree in 5 years. 

Undergraduate students in computer science can choose to begin the senior year at ISU with dual enrollment in both degree programs. In their senior year, students will have provisional graduate admission until the Bachelor’s degree is awarded with a final cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or above. For provisional graduate admission, the following are required: 3.0 overall GPA, completed at least 96 undergraduate credits.

Students should note that the CS MS data science and academic concentrations have courses with prerequisites that are not taken as part of the CS BS information science concentration. Students taking the CS BS information concentration would need to take the following before their senior year if they want to go into either of these concentrations: MATH 131 Calculus I, MATH 132 Calculus II, CS 302 Data Structures and Algorithms.
