BSE/MCS U2G Program

The BSE/MCS Program extends the existing joint BA/MCS and BS/MCS program to include students in the CS&E BSE program. Admission requirements and cross crediting requirements are all identical to the existing program (i.e., they must be approved by the Director of Graduate Studies in the student’s plan of study, and typically consist of CS courses numbered 4000 or above).
