Degrees & Programs Offerings
The department of Computer Science offers:
- Bachelor of Science (BS) in Computer Science
- Bachelor of Science in Cloud Computing (New)
- Master of Science (MS) in Bioinfomatics
- Master of Science in Advanced Computing (expected to offer in fall 2020)
1) Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
The undergraduate program in Computer Science prepares students for entry into the computing profession, for graduate study in computer, computational, and data sciences, and for the many challenges that will confront them in their professional and personal life. The Computer Science program also prepares students to apply their knowledge and training to produce solutions to specific and esoteric problems. Students learn to define the problem clearly; to determine its tractability; to determine when consultation with outside experts is appropriate; to evaluate and choose an appropriate solution strategy; and then to study, specify, design, implement, test, modify, and document that solution; to evaluate alternatives and perform risk analysis on that design; to integrate alternative techniques and technologies into that solution; and finally to communicate that solution to colleagues, to professionals in other fields, and to the general public. Key to all of this is the ability of the problem-solver to work within a team environment throughout the entire problem-solving process. More information about this program is available here.
2) The Master of Science (M.S.) in Bioinfomatics
The Master’s Degree in Bioinformatics at Morgan State University is designed to train such professionals with an educational background that blends biology with computer science. This program provides students with a strong foundation in computer programming, biostatistics, computer visualization, biostatistics, computational biology, computational mathematics, and database management. Graduates are well-prepared for academia and careers in the biotechnology, bioinformatics, pharmaceutical, and drug design industries. The full list of courses with descriptions are available here. More information about the program is available here.
3) B.S. in Cloud Computing (Online/Onsite)
The BS in Cloud Computing instructional program is being offered online as well as in a traditional classroom setting (face-to-face), providing innovative, inclusive, hands-on, workforce-oriented, and distinctive educational experiences to a broad cross-section of the population, including adult learners and other nontraditional students. The program is designed for students to gain knowledge in cloud computing , develop skills in cloud computing services and applications, have careers in cloud computing within industry, academia, and government as cloud administrators, architects, modelers, engineers, application developers, security specialists, analytics specialists, analysts, and researchers.
There will be ten (10) cloud computing required courses (30 credits) for the Program plus 6 computer science, 3 math, and 3 elective courses. The total major requirements consist of 22 courses (70 credits) and the Program consists of a total of 39 courses (120 credit). The full list of courses with description will be available soon. More information about this program is available here.
4) M.S. in Advanced Computing (Online/Onsite)
The MS in Advanced Computing program will preserve the core of Computer Science (CS) while possessing unique strength in emerging interdisaplinary areas in Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Cloud Computing. The program will be delivered in both online and face-to-face formats. For online learning participates, students take ten courses and can complete the degree program in a 12-month period. Students can also choose to work on a project or conduct research and then write a thesis under the guidance of the CS faculty. More information about this program is available here.
Inclusion and diversity is the core value for the CS department and Morgan State University. International students are warmly welcomed here. We will all benefit from your presence and your willingness to share your life, culture, and experiences with us.
