Computer science, with its many subfields, is a continuously expanding field of study and your success is in part determined by your interest in specialized disciplines. A Master of Science in Computer Science from Fontbonne University will give you the theoretical and practical tools to succeed and advance.
According to the Computing Research Association, the need for specialists in cybersecurity and data science is higher than it has ever been. ISACA, a non-profit information security advocacy group, has predicted that there will be a global shortage of 2 million cybersecurity professionals by 2019. The need for full-stack developers (skills learned in software engineering) has increased by 30 percent since October 2017. Full-stack developers are one of the highest-paid and most sought-after professionals in the US.
Your master program will be focused on one of three practical specializations: cybersecurity, data science, and software engineering.
Please note: The GRE requirement will be waived for all Fall 2020 applicants.
