Graduate Education - Master of Science in Computer Science

Master of Applied Computer Science - Online or On campus

FSU’s Master of Applied Computer Science program provides the necessary skills needed to meet demand in the technologically sophisticated workplace, with a focus on applied technical skills. The program offers the opportunity to specialize in one of two concentrations: the database concentration, which provides a comprehensive approach to detailed study in database, data mining and data warehousing; and the general concentration, which provides a broad applied knowledge in computer networking and communications, software engineering, databases, modern web development instruments and computing security concepts.

The structure of the online program is designed to allow students to balance employment and other life commitments while they complete the program, which can be completed in as little as two years for a part-time student and 12 months for a full-time student. FSU’s tuition and fees are comparatively less expensive than those at many other institutions, and courses are available year-round
