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. The Master of Computer Science, available in on campus and online, is offered over sixteen week semesters during fall and spring and a fourteen week semester in the summer. A full time student who attends all three semesters can complete this thirty six credit program in one full year of study. Additional options include the MS in Computer Information Systems, the MS in Information Security, MS in Information Technology, MS in Management Information Systems, and the MS in Information Technology in Education.

3. University of Maryland University College has an impressive group of graduate degrees in IT fields, all of which have titles that are not called computer science degrees but are among the most popular choices for computer related career tracks. There is a Master of Science (MS) in Information Systems & Services and a MS in Technology Management which includes specializations in Emergency Management and in E-Business. 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.

4. American InterContinental University has campuses in South Florida, Atlanta GA, and in Houston, TX. For well over a decade AIU has also operated a virtual campus offering undergraduate and graduate degrees online. In the computer science field there is a Master of Information Technology with concentration in IT Project Management with excellent core courses that support a project management focus: those include Database Design & Implementation, Enterprise Network Design, Object Oriented Application Development, Information Systems, and Strategic Information Management. There is also a Master of IT with concentration in Internet Security.

5. Kaplan University has a Master of Science in Information Technology program that offers several areas of specialization. The degree options include the MS in IT in Business Intelligence, with courses in Knowledge-based Systems & Management and Data Warehousing & Mining. The MS in IT in Entrepreneurship includes courses in Corporate Venturing and Small Business Administration. The MS in IT in Information Security & Assurance has classes in Computer Forensics, and Network Security. The MS in IT Project Management has a curriculum that includes Project Risk & Quality, and Procurement Monitoring & Controlling.
