Computer Science, Minor to Artificial Intelligence, M.S. Accelerated Program

Saint Louis University's computer science minor to artificial intelligence M.S. accelerated program allows a student to complete, in an accelerated fashion, both a minor in computer science and the Master of Science (M.S.) in Artificial Intelligence.

Students may choose to pursue a minor in computer science in addition to their chosen bachelor's degree major.

For additional information see the catalog entries for the following programs:

 

Computer Science, Minor

Artificial Intelligence, M.S.

Students who want to apply to this accelerated minor to master's program should have completed at least 75 credits at the time of application and must have already completed or be enrolled in CSCI 2100 Data Structures.

Students must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 at SLU and must have received grades of "B" or better in all CSCI courses thus far. To apply, students must submit a personal statement and arrange for two letters of recommendation.

Continuation Standards

Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 and a GPA of at least 3.00 in their computer science coursework. 

Students who drop below that GPA while in the accelerated program will be placed on a one-semester probationary period before being dismissed from the accelerated program. 

Roadmaps are recommended semester-by-semester plans of study for programs and assume full-time enrollment unless otherwise noted.  

Courses and milestones designated as critical (marked with !) must be completed in the semester listed to ensure a timely graduation. Transfer credit may change the roadmap.

This roadmap should not be used in the place of regular academic advising appointments. All students are encouraged to meet with their advisor/mentor each semester.  Requirements, course availability and sequencing are subject to change.
