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
