The College of Charleston offers a Bachelor of Science/Master of Science in Computer and Information Sciences program. For selected students, permitting up to 12 credit hours of graduate-level course work taken as an undergraduate as early as the junior year to count towards the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree and the Master of Science in Computer and Information Sciences degree allows for the design of a plan for completing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree and a Master of Science in Computer and Information Sciences degree in five years.

An undergraduate student in the five-year plan taking a graduate level course during the junior and senior years for both undergraduate and graduate credit would in every respect be treated as a graduate student in the course. The reason for including this option is to allow outstanding and motivated computer science majors to earn graduate credit during their junior and senior years and earn a Master’s degree in Computer and Information Sciences in a shorter time. Students enrolled in this program typically complete their M.S. degree within one calendar year after receiving the B.S. The combined degree is designed to integrate undergraduate-and graduate-level research and to give the selected students an outstanding preparation for entering a Ph.D. program in computer and information sciences or related fields.
