Science: The Field of Tomorrow
computer science are most promising for graduating University
students. New computer applications are extending at a rapid pace
in all areas, including medicine, the media, architecture, engineering,
and business overall. An almost insatiable demand exists for skilled
computer science professionals at hight entry-level salaries.
By all indications, the demand will continue for decades.
most attractive aspect of the computer science profession is the
diversity of careers it offers. These disciplines include the
design of computer systems and equipment, the development of software
to control operations and process information, and the research
to satisfy growing computer needs in all segements of society.
for computer scientists is exploding. Accordind the U.S. Bureau
of Labor Statistics, computing is the fastest growing occupation
for the next ten to fifteen years. Tomorrow belongs to those who
are educated in computer science today. Take the lead. Increase

offers two distinct graduate programs in computer science. The
Master of Arts program contains 33 hours, tails courses to students'
interests, and engages students with a project as a capstone experience.
The Master of Science program contains 33 semester hours, ensures
breadth and depth in computer science courses, and engages students
with a thesis as a capstone experience. Both programs offer a
variety of courses such as real-time systems, distributed systems,
networks, complexity, and expert systems. Students have completed
capstone experiences in such areas as medical imaging, network
emulation, achaealogical simulation, and character recognition.

who have completed their undergraduate studies in a field other
than computer science, may have to complete certain prerequisites
before beginning their graduate studies. Consult the graduate
coordinator for more information.
Departmental graduate scholarships to help offset tuition payments
are available to qualified students. University scholarships are
also available. Additionally, graduate students have the opportunity
to work in the department as graders or as assistants to professors.
The department of computer science has two dedicated computer
laboratories. The UNIX facility is equipped with Silicon Graphics
Indy workstations. The PC facility allows students to experience
multimedia technology on high-end workstations. Hofstra's modern
computing facilities offer student acces to a variety of computing
systems from main frames to personal computers. PCs and Macintosh
computers are networked to allow access to e-mail and the Internet.
The University supports more than 200 software applications.
Students wishing to enroll in either of the graduate programs
can do so by obtaining an application through the Office of Admissions.
