Dual/​Accelerated BS to MS in Computing

The dual/accelerated bachelor’s to master’s degree offers outstanding students the opportunity to pursue both the bachelor’s and master’s degree in unison and in an accelerated time frame.


To be considered for admission to the program, a student must have successfully completed at least 90 credit hours with a GPA of at least 3.250 in the bachelor’s degree. This program will only admit current Wichita State University undergraduate students with sufficient preparation to succeed in the program.

For complete requirements, including the eligible undergraduate programs and majors, please consult the Graduate Catalog and the department's website.

Program Requirements

The MS in computing enables students to obtain a master's degree in the computing field. This degree also utilizes stackable graduate certificates that the department offers. This means that students can earn graduate certificates in areas such as cybersecurity, data science, computer networking and software engineering that can be used to earn this master's degree. A typical student can easily stack two certificates and with a little extra work, even three certificates. More details and examples are available at the department website. This is a coursework-only degree, i.e., it cannot be completed with a project or thesis.

  • Only MS in computing major courses at the 700-level and above can be used for dual credit hours. Up to 9 credit hours can be used for the combined undergraduate and graduate program.
  • Until the bachelor’s degree is awarded, a Dual/Accelerated Enrollment Form must be completed for each semester in which the student takes qualifying courses at the graduate level.

For complete degree requirements, including lists of major courses and graduating options, please consult the Master of Science in computing program in the Graduate Catalog and visit the department’s website.
