Pre-Professional Studies in C.S.

Prepares a student with a 3-year undergraduate degree to enter graduate school in Computer Science

This certificate solves a problem for students with an international 3-year undergraduate degree, who want ot get into a U.S. graduate school like Loyola's, and who need the equivalent of a 4-year undergraduate degreee to be admitted. Not only does Loyola accept this eight course certificate as the equivalent of a fourth undergraduate year, it provides all the undergraduate Computer Science prerequisites needed for our Masters programs in the Computer Science Department, plus some of the breadth in the humanities common to U.S. degrees.

Minimum Requirements in Computer Science:

If a student already has the knowledge of a course from earlier courses or work experience, a Computer Science course numbered at least 300 may be substituted with approval of the Undergraduate Program Director.
