School of Computing and Information Science 4+1 Programs
College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (CLAS) students in any undergraduate major have the option to complete a master’s degree from the University of Maine School of Computing and Information Science (SCIS) through one of their “4+1” programs.
By planning ahead, CLAS undergraduate students can finish a master’s degree in a single year in one of the following areas:
- Master of Science in Computer Science (non-thesis option)
- Master of Science in Spatial Information Science and Engineering (non-thesis option, on-campus only)
- Master of Science in Spatial Informatics (distance learning only)
- Master of Science in Information Systems (on campus or distance learning)
Undergraduate students from any degree program at the University of Maine may apply as early as the summer before their junior year for admission to any of the above masters degree programs. Applications for “early admission” should be received by the middle of the first semester of the junior year and are not accepted after the senior year has commenced.
To apply for admission to the SCIS 4+1 Programs before or during the junior year, an applicant should expect to have an overall minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.25, must have completed the University of Maine General Education Requirement in Math, and must have three letters of recommendation from current or previous university instructors.
