Our computational sciences program is designed to equip graduates with a distinctive blend of theoretical and computational skills, for employment in industry, research laboratories and institutions of higher education. A distinctive feature of our program is that all core aspects of a student’s program of study, constituting in general the first two years of study, are undertaken within our one interdisciplinary department. While the bulk of their coursework will be undertaken in this department, their research topics may range across the computational aspects of a broad spectrum of disciplines.
A joint program between Marquette University and The Medical College of Wisconsin, the bioinformatics specialization is geared toward creating computing applications for the biological science.
The computing program is a professional master's degree that spans the study of computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, information technology and information systems. It is designed to enhance the computing skill set of current practitioners as well as students interested in moving into the computing field. Online course offerings via distance learning enhance the program flexibility for busy professionals and enable students outside the metro area to earn their MS degree.
The Mathematics for Secondary School Teachers specialization provides a Master of Science degree for mathematics teachers who wish to enhance their practice by deepening their understanding of mathematics and mathematics education beyond the bachelor's level.
