MS in Computer Science at Uchicago


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


Does anyone have any experience with the MS program at Uchicago?  It's a program that accepts non CS majors, and can be completed in as little as 9 months.  I'm a little skeptical that it might just be a scam, and that employers won't respect hte degree.  The program is called Computer Science Professional Program.


Can a non-tech guy like me get a job as a developer after completing that degree?  


The tuition is quite expensive, about 5000 per course.  11 courses will be about 55000.


Edit: Also does anyone know how selective they are?

Honestly it looks to me like this program is not in the same class as most other MSCS programs. It looks more like a professional degree that could be done part-time or even remotely. Still pretty expensive though. They're just doing admissions now for their fall 2013 enrollment (I know because they emailed me today about it).
