(Available to WFU undergraduate students)

Program Director Samuel S. Cho


This program allows Wake Forest University undergraduates pursuing a B.S. degree in Computer Science to also complete an M.S. degree in Computer Science with one additional year of study. Admitted students begin computer science graduate coursework during their senior year, complete an approved internship the following summer, and then finish the remaining graduate coursework the following academic year. This program provides a unique combination of computer science graduate coursework and experiential learning in a professional setting and it is an excellent option for students seeking a more industry-oriented career.

Applicants must be enrolled in and complete the B.S. degree in Computer Science at Wake Forest University. Students must apply for admission before the spring semester of their junior year and only after completing eighteen hours in the major that must include:

CSC 241Computer Systems4
CSC 221Data Structures and Algorithms I3
MST 121Linear Algebra I3
or MST 205 Introduction to Linear Algebra and Differential Equations

Applicants must have a major and overall GPA of 3.25 or better at the time of application and undergraduate graduation. In addition, applicants must provide three recommendation letters (submitted via the Graduate School), two of which must be from Wake Forest University computer science faculty. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required for admission.
