Accelerated BS+MS Program
Students enrolled in this program can earn both the undergraduate B.S. degree in computer science and the M.S. degree in computer science in approximately five years with careful planning of their course of study. Ideally, these students should have earned some college credit through AP work during high school. Interested students should speak to their undergraduate advisor during their freshman and sophomore years for assistance in planning.
Students interested in this option may apply for the accelerated B.S. and M.S. program as soon as they have completed CSC 330 with a grade of B (3.0) or better and must have a GPA of 3.0 or better in both the major and overall. To remain in the accelerated program a student must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better.
During the junior and senior years, a student in the accelerated program will normally take two to four graduate-level courses (i.e., 6 to 12 s.h.) required for the M.S. degree in computer science in addition to courses required for the B.S. degree. Course requirements for the accelerated B.S. and M.S. in computer science are the same as the course requirements for the regular B.S. and M.S. in computer science programs.
More information on accelerated BS+MS programs at UNCG, including information on how to apply, is available in the UNCG Graduate Bulletin.
