Computer Science 4+1 Program
The CS 4+1 program allows Emory undergraduates to obtain a CS BA/BS from Emory College in four years and a CS MS degree from the Laney Graduate School in one extra year. To complete the program, 4+1 students are expected to take two graduate courses each semester of their senior year and six more graduate courses (or equivalent project hours) in the +1 year. At most 6 graduate course credits may be double-counted toward the BA/BS degree.
- Complete four core CS MS courses, based on chosen CS MS concentration.
- Complete three elective courses, based on chosen CS MS concentration.
- Complete one of the following three options:
- Three more elective courses, based on chosen CS MS concentration.
- One more elective course based on chosen CS MS concentration + six project credit hours (under the supervision of a CSI faculty member).
- A nine hours thesis project (under the supervision of a CSI faculty member)
- Complete an internship.
Further information on the CS MS degree program can be found here.
