Program Proposal(pdf)

MS  Substantial Modification: Applied Computer Science   8/11/2014  Approved  8/22/2014 

Substantial Modification: Applied Computer Science  Program Description

Frostburg State University is proposing to expand the mode of program delivery to include online instruction of its existing Master of Science in Applied Computer Science. The goal is to provide access to students who want to complete their coursework while they are working and to address the shortage of higher-level computer science professionals in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The curriculum focuses more on the applied technical skills than the theoretical foundations. Students will acquire skills for positions in database administration, data management, database engineering, database security and analysis, data modeler and Hadoop programmer. The program also provides a broad applied knowledge in computer networking and communications, software engineering, modern web development instruments and computing security concepts.
