B.S.-to-M.S. Degree

B.S.-to-M.S. Degree 

The GGCS offers a unique B.S.-to-M.S. integrated degree program.

Students may apply to the BS/MS program if they are a CS or CSE major at UC Davis in their senior year. The application process consists of submitting an application for admission (https://grad.ucdavis.edu/apply), transcripts and 3 letters of recommendation. If admitted, a BS/MS student may choose 1 of the following 3 options to earn a MS degree: 6 graduate courses and a written thesis, 7 graduate courses and a project, 9 graduate courses and an exam in 3 core areas.

Because the applicant pool varies from year to year, we can only offer general advice on the admission process. We look at the whole application, including classes, GPA, statement of purpose, and letters of recommendation. Grades are just a part of the application, and many of these aspects of the application will depend on the applicant pool.
