The University of North Texas is introducing the Pathways Program for MS in Computer Science for students who do not come from a traditional computing background, but want to be a part of the growing computing discipline. It primarily consists of six courses crafted specifically to prepare students for entry into the MS in CS program.
Students in the Pathways Program will be conditionally admitted into the MS in Computer Science but are required to maintain a B average in the following course sequence their first year. Note, two courses in the second semester will count toward the full MS in CS requirements (students will only have to take 9 courses (27 credit hours) instead of the full 11 courses (33 credits).
CSCE 5001 Computer Science Theory I (3 hours) – introduction to data structures and algorithms, theory of computation
CSCE 5011 Computer Science Programming I (3 hours) – introduction to programming language foundations, programming paradigms, software engineering
CSCE 5021 Computer Science Systems I (3 hours) – introduction to system programming, operating systems, database systems
CSCE 5002 Computer Science Theory II (3 hours) – advanced data structures and algorithms, theory of computation
CSCE 5012 Computer Science Programming II (3 hours) – advanced programming language foundations, programming paradigms, software engineering
CSCE 5022 Computer Science Systems II (3 hours) – advanced system programming, operating systems, database systems
