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. Beginning in August 2019, this program is available at our West St. Louis County campus.
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.
Located in a beautiful residential neighborhood in the vibrant St. Louis suburb of Clayton, our original, main campus is home to Fontbonne’s administrative offices, on-campus housing, the Jack C. Taylor Library, bookstore, theater, art studio and gallery, as well as classrooms, education spaces and offices.
Focusing primarily on graduate and evening programs, Fontbonne’s new West St. Louis County campus allows Fontbonne to expand our MBA and master’s programs in accounting, leadership, computer science and supply chain management. Our West County campus will also be the home of our Ed.D program.
Your advanced degree in computer science can lead to many job sectors: banking, entertainment, production, government, education, healthcare, just to name a few.
