Accelerated BS-MS Computer Science

The BS-MS accelerated degree program allows undergraduate students in the Computer Science program to begin coursework towards the non-thesis option of the Master of Science in Computer Science program during their senior year at Texas A&M University-Commerce. Students can earn a B.S. and M.S. degree in five years upon completion of degree requirements for both degrees. For this accelerated program, 6 credits of graduate coursework can be applied to the undergraduate degree. To be admitted to the BS/MS Accelerated program in Computer Science, the candidate must be a Computer Science major with an overall Undergraduate GPA of 3.25.  Students must apply for the accelerated program during the semester they will earn 90 semester hours or more towards their bachelors program.  Once admitted, the BS/MS candidate must maintain a 3.25 Undergraduate GPA.
