Computer Science, B.A. to Artificial Intelligence, M.S. Accelerated Program
This program allows a student to complete, in an accelerated fashion, both the Bachelor in Arts in Computer Science and the Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence at Saint Louis University.
Students who wish to apply to this accelerated program should have completed all 2000-level coursework required of the computer science bachelor's program and have completed at least 75 credits at the time of application. At the time of application, students must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 and a GPA of at least 3.00 in their computer science coursework.
Contact the graduate coordinator for more details.
Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 and a GPA of at least 3.00 in their computer science coursework.
Students who drop below that GPA while in the accelerated program will be placed on a one-semester probationary period before being dismissed from the accelerated program.
Only grades of B or better in the graduate courses taken while an undergraduate can be applied to the master's degree.
Roadmaps are recommended semester-by-semester plans of study for programs and assume full-time enrollment unless otherwise noted.
Courses and milestones designated as critical (marked with !) must be completed in the semester listed to ensure a timely graduation. Transfer credit may change the roadmap.
This roadmap should not be used in the place of regular academic advising appointments. All students are encouraged to meet with their advisor/mentor each semester. Requirements, course availability and sequencing are subject to change.
