5 Masters in Computer Science Schools

Five Masters in Computer Science Schools

A good technology school generally has by this time developed an array of IT degrees that align with the various specializations that have arisen in computer science, computer engineering and information management. Our list of schools have done just that: here you will find a selection of academic choices that open various career tracks. Entering into a graduate program in computer science requires some idea of a career goal because of the rapidly growing complexity in the field; most students who opt for a graduate degree in one of the computer sciences have spent hundreds of hours either working or interning in the field, or have been IT oriented since their early years. These degree options are in most cases available on campus and online, putting them within reach of working professionals and full time students alike.

1. University of Southern California is one of the top tier traditional universities that has chosen to wade into the online education sector. They have done so in education, social work, and with a number of graduate programs in engineering and computer science. The online degrees from USC include the Master of Science (MS) in Computer Science, the MS in Computer Science with specialization in Computer Security (Cyber Security), the MS. in Computer Science with specialization in Computer Networks, the MS in Computer Science with specialization in Multimedia & Creative Technologies, the MS in Computer Science with specialization in Software Engineering, and several highly technical specializations in Computer Science including Human Language Technology, Intelligent Robotics, and High Performance Computing & Simulation.

2. Nova Southeastern University has four South Florida campuses and a complete online education program that makes most of their academic programs available in either format.

3.

Other options include the Master of Information Technology Project Management, the MS in Software Engineering, and the MS in Information Technology with specialization in Telecommunications Management.
