Curricular Graduation Requirements

A minimum of 36 credits of graduate-level course work is required for the Master Degree in Computer Science. Additional basic coursework such as English and Algebra as well as computer science preparatory courses may be required for a student with a non-computer science undergraduate preparation.

Preparatory Courses include:

PCE301 Operating System & Programming Languages 3 credits

PCE302 C Programming & Data Structures 3 credits

PCE303 Windows &UNIX Operating System 3 credits

PCE304 Computer Networks & Data Communications 3 credits

Basic Requirements

All MSCS students must complete coursework in required courses and electives courses. Students entering with background deficiencies should clear the deficiencies in the first two semesters after joining HGU. A grade of “B“ or better must be earned in all foundation and concentration courses. A cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better is required to graduate, and students must be in good standings with the University.

Practicum Requirement

Herguan University’s courses expect that students are engaged in work experience concurrent with studies, or already have work experience because of the practical orientation of the curriculum. Practicum therefore is a required supervised practical work experience, if students qualify, that applies classroom learning in a work setting, and informs classroom learning. The Practicum course is under the supervision of a faculty member, operates with a written agreement that specifies the arrangement between the institution and the practicum site, includes specific student learning objectives, course requirements, and evaluation criteria. Details of the qualifications are delineated in the application process for the student. The supervising faculty member is responsible for checking the student’s qualifications, monitoring student attention to learning objectives, and coordinating the employer evaluation of student interns. Exceptions to the required practicum may be made if a student is unable to attain work or is unable to work in an internship while studying, or has extensive work experience already. The Academic adviser will decide the exception and what additional course in the program of study will be necessary to take.
