Masters in Information Security and Assurance
BS in Computer Science / Accelerated MS in Information Security and Assurance
This program is for BSCS students interested in immediately continuing their undergraduate studies in computer science with graduate studies in information security and assurance.
Admission RequirementsStudents in the BS in computer science program can apply for this program if they have earned 90 undergraduate credits with an overall GPA of at least 3.30. Criteria for admission are identical to the criteria for admission to the MS in information security and assurance program.
Degree RequirementsStudents must complete 144 credits that satisfy both the requirements for the BS in computer science program and those for the MS in information security and assurance program, with 6 credits overlap.
Students register for two of the following courses (6 credits of 500-level computer science core courses) in place of the corresponding 400-level computer science courses, as part of the undergraduate degree requirements: CS 540, 571, 580, and 583.
Students complete all MS in information security and assurance core courses and apply the two courses from the above list toward the MS in information security and assurance requirements.
Degree ConferralStudents may apply to have the BS in computer science degree conferred during the semester in which they expect to complete BS degree requirements. At the completion of the MS in information security and assurance requirements, a master's degree will be granted.
