Dual undergraduate/graduate programs enable admitted undergraduate students to begin taking specified graduate courses during their senior year and count the coursework toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees.
The department offers a dual degree for students to receive a B.S. in Computer Science with an M.S. in Computer Science. A sample course plan is available here.
Students must be formally accepted into the dual degree program to be able to take graduate courses as an undergraduate. Additionally, acceptance into the dual program does not constitute admission to the master’s program. Students must fulfill regular graduate admissions requirements and apply for the master’s program.
Students must meet the following minimum requirements to qualify:
- B or better grade in CSc 1301, CSc 1302, CSc 2720, and either CSc 2510 or Math 2420
- Earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher and across the above courses
- Have completed no more than 4 credit hours in Area H
Advantages to completing a computer science dual degree at GSU:
- GRE is waived
- Tuition waivers likely for the year of graduate studies
- M.S. stipend likely for the year of graduate studies
- Use HOPE and/or Pell Grant funds for the 12 credit hours counting toward both your B.S. and M.S. degrees
- Save time and money toward earning an M.S. degree in computer science and increase your earning potential
