Master of Science


The program is designed to accommodate students seeking a terminal MS degree or preparation for entering a PhD program.

In addition to the graduate school admission requirements, students entering the graduate program must have completed computer science coursework in the areas of programming in a modern high-level language, basic computer organization and architecture, data structures and algorithms, and principles of operating systems and networks. Students should also have completed mathematics courses equivalent to differential and integral calculus including infinite series, discrete mathematics, linear algebra, and probability and statistics.

Students in the program may apply to participate in the Interdisciplinary Graduate Track in Structural and Computational Biophysics. On successful completion of this track, a student will earn an MS degree in computer science (thesis option) with a Certificate in Structural and Computational Biophysics.
