Joint B.S. Computer Science/M.S. in Web Science (4 1 Honors Program)

 This five-year program allows highly motivated students to earn both a B.S. in Computer Science along with a Master's in Web Science in just five years. Open only to students with at least a 3.3 grade point average, students begin taking graduate courses as early as their junior year.

  • Students in the Computer Science B.S. program may apply after their sophomore year of college. A minimum grade point average of 3.3 is required in all lower-division Computer Science courses and a 3.0 in all courses.
  • Students need not take the GRE. Admission will be based on GPA and letters of recommendation.
  • Students admitted into the program must maintain a 3.0 in major courses.

Students may not count courses for both the Computer Science degree and the Web Science degree except for:

    • The graduate course CS 601: Object-Oriented Software Development may be substituted for undergraduate requirement CS 342 Introduction to Software Engineering; and
    • CS 690 Master's Project may be substituted for undergraduate requirement CS 490 Senior Project.

Other than these two exceptions, a course cannot be counted for both the M.S. in Web Science degree and an undergraduate Computer Science course.
