Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.
The computing field covers a wide range of studies, including information systems, computer engineering, information technology, computer science and software engineering. Different computing disciplines may cover software and hardware system building and design, the creation of intelligent computers, information structuring and scientific research.

Master in Computer ScienceThe 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. USF also offers a three-year MSCS Bridge Program that provides a unique opportunity for students who are from non-Computer Science backgrounds to pursue an MS in Computer Science. In the first year, students take preparatory classes. 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).... [-]
