Graduate Coordinator: David Eggert, Associate Professor of Computer Science, PhD, University of South Florida.
The broad scope of the M.S. in Computer Science and its advanced professional training give you the tools for solid success in a field of constantly evolving computing disciplines and applications. You can use this degree to either enter the computing field or advance in it — as well as in any field related to it.
Recognized nationally as a leader in experiential education, UNH offers a 30-credit master’s degree program in computer science with integrated learning of theory and practice in state-ofthe-art facilities. The program requires selecting a distribution course from each of the areas of software development, theory and analysis, and computer systems. The seven remaining electives can be tailored to your interests, focusing in areas such as database systems, networking and security, web development, advanced applications, and more.
The program requires prior knowledge typical of an undergraduate computer science degree. Students with an inadequate background will be required to take as many as six additional core courses as part of their plan of study. Because the Graduate School at UNH offers courses on a trimester schedule, you can complete the 30-credit program in 12-16 months. If remedial coursework is necessary, a full two years of study may be needed.
