MS in Computer Science Info
The UWG Undergraduate Catalog lists the requirements for the degree. We have also prepared an advising packet that includes the advising worksheet, recommended schedules, projected course rotation and prerequisite flowchart, and other important information.
Our graduates go on to pursue successful and rewarding careers in computing and information technology. The U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) projects "employment of computer and information technology occupations [...] to grow 12 percent from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations." The OOH also notes that "the median annual wage for computer and information technology occupations was $86,320 in May 2018, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $38,640."
All undergraduate Computer Science majors are advised in the Computer Science program. Majors are required to participate in a two-tiered advising process during each semester of enrollment by meeting both with a professional advisor and a faculty member.
Ms. Alexandra Young is the professional academic advisor for all undergraduate Computer Science majors. Ms. Young is available to meet with students for advising appointments and can also assist via email or phone with any other academic advising questions or concerns for Computer Science.

Small Class Sizes
“Classes are smaller than at some larger universities, so we get a lot of one-on-one attention from our professors. Other schools are often more theoretical. West Georgia focuses on applied computer science, which is what I needed for the kind of career I want to start."
