Master of Science in Computer Science

Loyola Marymount University's Master of Science in Computer Science program offers day and evening classes geared toward both working professionals and full-time students. The program features interdisciplinary curricula built on the principles and values of the open source culture and emphasizes:

  • Computing on multiple platforms. Students work with computers running macOS, Linux, and Windows, as well as iPhones, iPads, robots, drones, smart TVs, IoT devices, and game consoles (Xbox, PS3, Wii, Kinect).
  • Open source software development. Students frequently work in teams and publish their work openly on repositories such as GitHub, CodePen, and various public playgrounds.
  • Interdisciplinary options. Courses in fields such as biological databases, virtual worlds, scripting for animation, artificial intelligence, cubesat programming, technology ventures, and game design, several of which are team taught, offer students the opportunity to pursue a variety of interests.
