Accelerated BS/MS Dual Degree Program
The accelerated BS/MS dual degree program is for outstanding undergraduate students who wish to spend approximately one additional year to complete their MS degree immediately after their BS degree. A student who is accepted into the accelerated BS/MS dual degree program will be able to take up to three graduate courses (9 semester units) in Computer Science and apply them to both the BS and MS degree requirements. There can be significant financial benefits to students who enroll in this program, although these are best discussed with your financial aid counselor.
A student will not receive their Bachelor's degree until the requirements for both Bachelor's and Master's degrees have been completed. The Department of Computer Science permits students to work toward their Master's degree as soon as feasible, but the department strongly encourages students to make completion of all degree requirements for their Bachelor's degree their first priority.
