Five-Year Option Get a bachelor's and master's degree in just five years! The Department of Computer Science is excited to announce this new option for all incoming freshmen. You can... Complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) or Bachelor of Arts (Computer Studies) and in the fourth year take two graduate level courses in computing that will count for eight hours towards the general electives in your bachelor’s degree and also eight hours towards your master’s degree. In the fifth year, you take 24 hours (six courses) of graduate courses to complete the master’s degree. You may also delay graduating with the bachelor’s degree until the end of the fifth year, and then graduate with both the master’s and bachelor’s degrees at the same time. This is an advantage because although you will be taking graduate courses, SXU will consider you to be an undergraduate and not only charge you undergraduate tuition but also allow you to use your financial aid package in the fifth year. However, since every student’s situation is different, you should check with the Financial Aid Office before making this decision. Entrance Requirements The MACS program is designed for students with a bachelor's degree in computer science or a related field. However, a student with a non-computer-related degree may substitute relevant work experience as a prerequisite for entry into the program. College graduates who have not worked or studied in a computing field may become eligible for the program by addressing their deficiencies, either by taking courses at Saint Xavier University prior to their enrollment in the program (a conditional acceptance will be considered) or by providing documentation that they have completed similar courses at another institution. Students wishing to pursue this option should consult with the program director. Students with no experience in programming will be required to gain proficiency in one programming language (for example, Visual Basic, C, Java or C++) prior to acceptance into the program. In some cases a student may be required to complete an introductory computing course. Please contact the program director for advice on fulfilling these requirements. Program Requirements The master of applied computer science degree requires 32 credit hours of graduate course work consisting of at least 20 credit hours at the 500-level and at most 12 credit hours at the 400-level.

A completed application form (PDF). 2. Official transcript(s) sent directly from the registrar of the accredited baccalaureate degree-granting college/university and all graduate level coursework. 3. A non-refundable $35 application fee, unless applying online. 4. Personal statement. In approximately 300 words, please address (1) your personal career goals, (2) how you developed an interest in computer technology and the Internet, (3) your computer background and proficiency, (4) how this program fits into your goals, (5) what skills and experience you bring to the program, and (6) what are your needs and expectations of the master of applied computer science program? 5. Two completed recommendation forms. Recommendation forms must be completed by individuals (supervisors, professors, coworkers, etc.) who can attest to your academic competence, professional skills and character. Graduates of Saint Xavier University need not submit recommendations, unless specifically asked to do so after submitting the application. 6. If admitted into the program, an advisor will review your resume and transcripts. Students who have not worked in the information systems field and/or do not have a computer based undergraduate degree may need additional coursework. Apply online for the master of computer science (MACS) program or request an information packet by mail. [-]
