Frequently Asked Questions

GRE scores are not required to apply to our online M.S. in Computer Science or M.S. in Data Science.

Online programs are offered at a part-time pace, allowing enrolled students to continue to work full-time while pursuing their degrees. Students in the online MSCS and MSDS programs will spend a combined average of 9-12 hours per week on live lectures, asynchronous course material and assignments.

Students in both the online MSCS and MSDS programs are held to the same standards as our residential students.
