Electives - Total 9 credits
Three additional courses will be taken from the list of approved bio/cheminformatics approved courses. The list below is for example only and it includes the current approved courses. This list will be updated as new courses are added to the program.
MATH.5930 (3 credits) Experimental Design (Mathematics Department)
Although Organic Chemistry is not required as a prerequisite, some of the courses offered as part of this degree rely on knowledge of this subject.
Students should be aware that the above courses may only be used toward the Bio/Cheminformatics option. If the entire requirements of the option are not completed then these courses cannot be applied in isolation toward the M.S. in Computer Science.
Program Total: 30 credits (assuming prerequisites have been filled)
An optional master's thesis can be substituted for at most 6 credits, and may be used to substitute for one pair of related courses.
