Under the combined B.S./M.S. Program, a full-time SCU undergraduate student can begin work on courses required for a master’s degree before the B.S. degree requirements are complete, typically leading to a master’s degree within a year of obtaining the bachelor’s degree. This program is open only to students at Santa Clara University who are completing a B.S. degree in either computer science and engineering, web design and engineering, computer engineering, or computer science.
No course can be used to simultaneously satisfy requirements in both the B.S. and M.S. degree programs. However, completion of 12 or more units of courses in computer engineering taken for the master’s degree will satisfy the Educational Enrichment Electives of the undergraduate program.
Students in this program will receive a B.S. degree after satisfying the standard undergraduate degree requirements. To earn the M.S. degree, students must fulfill all the requirements for the M.S. degree specified in the graduate catalog, including the completion of 45 units of coursework beyond that applied to the bachelor’s degree.
