This is Dr. Matt Thatcher, Professor and Chair of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. I want to make you aware of an excellent opportunity available to you – the Bachelor’s/Masters Accelerated Program. This is a combined B.S./M.S degree program available to undergraduate students in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) with 90 or more hours earned toward their baccalaureate degrees. Students accepted into this program must have a minimum overall GPA of 3.40 and at least 3.40 in the course work taken in CSE. Up to 12 credit hours at the 500 level or above may be applied toward both the B.S. and M.S. degree requirements; this means that with one additional year of study you will leave USC with both a B.S. and an M.S. degree!
The approval of the student's advisor and the graduate director is required. You must have approval before enrolling in the 500 level or above courses in order for them to apply toward this accelerated degree program. So, make sure to contact the graduate director (via this link) soon to learn more about this opportunity; when you complete the contact form at this link please select Graduate admissions or questions as the Category. I hope everyone has a wonderful Fall Break! Sincerely, Matt E. Thatcher, Ph.D. Professor and Chair
