Master of Science

The University of Northern Virginia's Master of Business Administration Program prepares students for management and leadership positions in "old" and "new" economy businesses throughout the world. MBA students are exposed to a balanced emphasis, a solid foundation that includes business fundamentals, tools and models useful for making decisions, and a healthy exposure to information technology.

The computer science professional specialty group requires a deeper attesting to competence as a Computer Scientist and Systems Analyst, Manager of Information Systems (MIS) or System Engineer.

The Master of Science Degrees listed below are designed to meet the professional level needs of specialists in microcomputer science and technology. The program delivers a fundamental understanding of the use, knowledge, function, installation, and maintenance of computers.

Each MS Program is comprised of fourteen three-credit courses (42 credit hours) and is divided into three groups of courses. The first group, or "Cornerstone Courses", provides students with a solid academic foundation upon which the second group, or "Core Courses", is built. This group gives students the necessary knowledge and skills to work with an increasingly complex technological field. The third group, or "Concentration Courses", allows students the opportunity to develop further in their specific area of interest.
