The Department of Computer Science offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in Computer Science. The degrees are:
Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
The Computer Science curriculum, leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, is a liberal arts oriented curriculum intended to prepare students for careers in programming and systems analysis. Computer Science is a multifaceted discipline that encompasses a broad range of topics. At one end of the spectrum, computer science focuses on the theoretical capabilities of computers and on the properties of various general problems and algorithms. At the other, more applied end of the spectrum, computer science deals with techniques for the design and construction of machines, and with advanced applications of computers in all aspects of our society.

Master of Science in Computer Science
The School of Computer and Information Sciences offers the degree of Master of Science in Computer Science. This degree program has two options: Computer Science and Computer Information Systems. The degree programs are designed to serve two purposes:
as a "Professional" program to allow computer scientists in industry to upgrade
their professional skills
as an "Academic" program to allow capable computer scientists to prepare for
the terminal degree
The MS program requires you to complete 30 graduate credit hours which includes some required core courses and some elective courses. In each major you have Non-thesis Option and Thesis option. You can elect to complete 36 credit hours by course work only (non-thesis option) or you can complete 36 credit hours by course work and thesis (thesis option). See the curriculum sheet for more detail.
Any student who wishes to take Thesis option must take the approval of Graduate Advisor prior to registering for thesis. It is recommended that any student who wishes to take thesis option must take the approval of Graduate Advisor in their first semester at GSW and initiate the process. Failure to do so may result in delayed graduation.
Periodic revisions are made in the curriculum to prepare the students to meet the current industry demand. You may see a revision in curriculum sheet as you progress in the master program. However, you will be allowed to complete the master program using the same curriculum sheet you started with. The curriculum sheets are identified by effective year (eg. 2010-11).
