New Online Computer Science Programs at Morgan State University

The Department of Computer Science in the School of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences at Morgan State University has recently been approved to offer a Bachelor degree in Cloud Computing and a Master degree in Advanced Computing. Both programs are open to addmissions in fall 2020.

The MS in Advanced Computing program preserves the core of Computer Science (CS) while possessing unique strength in emerging areas in Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Cloud Computing. The program will be delivered in both online and face-to-face formats. For online learning participates, students take ten courses and can complete the degree program in a 12-month period. Students can also choose to work on a project or conduct research and then write a thesis under the guidance of the CS faculty.

The BS in Cloud Computing instructional program is offered online as well as in a traditional classroom setting (face-to-face), providing innovative, inclusive, hands-on, workforce-oriented, and distinctive educational experiences to a broad cross-section of the population, including adult learners and other nontraditional students.

Inclusion and diversity is the core value for the CS department and Morgan State University. International students are warmly welcomed here. We will all benefit from your presence and your willingness to share your life, culture, and experiences with us.

Morgan State University Board of Regents Approves New Bachelor of Science Degree in Cloud Computing

During the public session of the Morgan State University (MSU) Board of Regents' fall quarterly meeting, Board members voted unanimously to allow the university to pursue the addition of a new Bachelor of Science degree in Cloud Computing. The creation of a Cloud Computing degree undergraduate program at Morgan would mark the first such program of its kind offered at a Maryland university and would advance opportunities for students seeking highly sought-after proficiencies in a growing interdisciplinary field.
