Program Description

M.S. in Computer Science

University of San Francisco - College of Arts & Sciences

Master in Computer Science

The ever-changing world of software and computer science has always demanded more advanced training and education.

With the University of San Francisco's prime location in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area and its proximity to Silicon Valley, USF graduate students enjoy an environment rich with the many innovations and opportunities of this world-renown region of technology. For these reasons and others, the number of students in the graduate program in Computer Science at the University of San Francisco has grown by 65% since 1999.

The Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) provides students with a broad background in software development and other core disciplines of computer science. This core background serves as a sound foundation for CS graduate students as they develop a substantial software project - either as a research-driven or commercially sponsored project.

Small classes and close interaction with full-time faculty are a hallmark of graduate education at USF. Along with the full-time teaching and research faculty, outside experts bring real-word computing experience to the classroom. In the Harney Science Center on the USF campus, a state-of-the-art computer and multimedia studio was constructed and endowed with a $2.5 million gift from a Computer Science alumnus. Students and faculty also maintain the W.M. Keck Computer Cluster (a Myrinet-connected network of 128 processors which provides students with on-site access to one of the most powerful computers at a liberal arts university).
