The Benefits of Obtaining a Graduate Degree in Computer Science

Office job

Choosing a career path is not a decision to take lightly. It is important to pick a field that you enjoy and can confidently rely on for employment. In today’s changing technological world, the field of computer science is in high demand. In fact, the mid-career salary for individuals with a master’s degree in computer science is over $100,000, and those with an advanced degree can expect a variety of employment opportunities after graduation. Along with the opportunity to earn a great salary, a graduate degree in computer science offers:

Specialized knowledge of the field.

While undergraduate curriculum provides a strong foundation of knowledge, graduate students are able to fine tune their computer science skills. Through meaningful coursework and excellent instructors, students leave with the ability to tackle more complex problems. This better prepares them for careers in the computer science field. Master degree programs provide the opportunity to work on complex problems that can be applied to real-world settings. Students are able to build on the knowledge they gained as undergrads and become specialists in the field.

Experience that sets graduates apart as job candidates.

The specialized knowledge that students in graduate-level computer science programs acquire sets them apart in the job applicant pool. They can offer more sophisticated programming skills than those without graduate degrees. This gives those with master’s degrees a competitive advantage. Employers know that advanced education better prepares applicants to solve a variety of complex problems and to adapt to the changing role of computers in society.

The computer science graduate program offered by Seattle University’s College of Science and Engineering gives students the tools they need to make an impact in the computer science field. With our superior teaching staff and networking opportunities, we can ensure that our students leave prepared to tackle the complex problems that lie ahead.
