Master Program Admission Requirements
Applicants must submit the required application materials to the Graduate Office. In addition, they must submit GRE general scores. The personal statement should explain the candidate’s goals and objectives concerning his/her professional career.
Applicants should have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution (Applicants who do not meet this criterion may also be considered for admission if they can demonstrate convincingly that they have the equivalent of a baccalaureate degree.) In addition, they should demonstrate:
Knowledge of program design in a high-level programming language (such as C, C++, Java)
Knowledge of an assembly language, computer architecture, and operating systems
Knowledge of software engineering
Knowledge of mathematical analysis and elements of theoretical foundations of computer science and analysis of algorithms
The department has established a fast-track BS-MS program permitting UMass Dartmouth Computer Science undergraduates to progress to the masters level smoothly and at a savings of some overall credits. See the General Catalogue for information and special admissions procedures.
