Core Knowledge Program for PSM

The department welcomes students from different disciplines who desire an MSCS degree and students who have not been involved with computing in some time but want to come back to the field. If a student does not meet the minimum computing requirements, the department has created a Core Knowledge sequence, shown in the table below, to address the minimum requirements needed in order to continue in the program. A student also has the option to complete this coursework online during the summer prior to the fall start of their master’s degree coursework. If students need more extensive preparation, we will work with the student to develop a program that meets their needs to prepare them for their MS program.
