Bachelor's/Master's (BS/MS) in Computer Science University of Washington



Course info


The Combined Bachelor's/Master's (BS/MS) program is designed so that students may complete both their Bachelor's of Science in CS or CE and their Master's of Science in CSE degrees in approximately five years of study. The program is intended to allow increased breadth and depth of study to better prepare students for their careers and was designed with feedback from faculty, industry affiliates, and CSE students themselves.

Allen School BS/MS students earn a master's degree in approximately one year of courses beyond standard bachelor's requirements. Most students are admitted after finishing 300-level requirements in their junior year so they can plan their CSE senior and graduate requirements as a coherent two-year plan. The application process for the BS/MS program is competitive, and roughly 50 applicants are admitted each fall.

The program accepts only currently enrolled UW Seattle CS/CE majors.

Why a Combined BS/MS?

Most master's degree programs take several years to complete. CSE's BS/MS students earn a master's degree in approximately one year of courses beyond standard bachelor's requirements. This accelerated program works because most students begin graduate requirements during their senior year in the department. Students are admitted after finishing 300-level requirements so they can plan their CSE senior and graduate requirements as a coherent two-year plan.

The program was created with industry-bound students in mind. A master's degree is often the most cost-effective industry degree: the relatively short amount of time spent on the master's (and relatively low expense of one year's tuition) can significantly boost compensation and job opportunities. Both starting salary and long-term prospects are improved with an advanced degree. For students headed to industry, we expect this opportunity to be efficient and effective.

While BS/MS coursework, research options, and faculty connections are valuable for all students, this program may not be necessary for Ph.D.-bound students. Strong students intent on pursuing a Ph.D. should consider applying directly to Ph.D. programs. However, if you are uncertain about your plans, advisors and faculty welcome the opportunity to discuss options with you.

The BS and MS are separate degrees. Please note the following before we describe specific requirements:

If admitted to the master's program while an undergraduate, you do not attain graduate student status until your bachelor's degree has been completed.

You can start on your master's degree requirements while you are still an undergraduate: up to 12 credits towards your master's degree requirements earned after admission to the BS/MS program and prior to completion of your bachelor's degree can count towards your master's degree provided that courses are not used to fulfill any bachelor's degree requirement.
