If you’re considering pursuing a
graduate degree in computer science, you may have questions about what to expect from your education and how
your degree translates into real world opportunities. At Seattle University
College of Science and Engineering, our admissions and advising staff
is always available to answer questions you have both before you apply
and while you are enrolled in your graduate program. Here are the answers
to some common questions students have pursuing computer science education.
What are the graduate program goals?
At Seattle University, our graduate program is designed to give students
advanced knowledge of a variety of computer science topics. Classes are
designed to strengthen the knowledge students have from their undergraduate
careers of core computer science areas, including systems, databases,
software design, and algorithms, as well as the opportunity for more focused
study within a chosen area of technical expertise. Students also get hands-on
experience with either research or software implementation through a graduate
project that can help to prepare them to enter their chosen field.
What career paths are possible after the graduate program?
With graduate degrees in computer science, students pursue multiple paths.
Some begin new careers as software developers, while others move forward
in their existing careers in the software industry. Still other students
choose to enter doctoral studies after completing a Master of Science program.
What are the admissions requirements?
To enter the computer science graduate program at Seattle University, students
must have an undergraduate degree in computer science or a background
in the computer science field judged to be sufficient preparation for
graduate studies. Some students may be admitted provisionally without
meeting these basic requirements, but they may have to take additional courses.
