The UGA Advantage: Double Dawgs Program (Computer Science BS/ Computer Science MS in five years) has been approved to start in Fall 2017.
12 credit hours will be counted for both the BS and MS for any student enrolled in the new program.
Students wishing to pursue the dual degrees must first submit an application to be admitted to the program pathway. For both programs, students should have completed at least 60 credit hours; have completed CSCI 1302 Software Development, CSCI 2670 Introduction to Theory of Computing, CSCI 2720 Data Structures, MATH 2250 Calculus I, and CSCI 3030 Computing, Ethics and Society with grades of C or better; and have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher at the time of application.
Acceptance to the pathway does not guarantee acceptance into the graduate program. For that, a separate application to the Graduate School is needed. It is recommended that students apply to the pathway in the spring semester of their third year and to the graduate program in their fourth year.
To apply to the program pathway, students should complete the Pathways application.
· March 20: Deadline for application to program pathway and to graduate program for students wishing to start in the Fall Semester.
·October 20: Deadline for application to program pathway and to graduate program for students wishing to start in the Spring Semester.
