In this online degree program, students gain knowledge and skills in programming fundamentals, software engineering, computer systems and networking, mobile and web development, and user interfaces. Build a rewarding career by merging these skills with your previous bachelor’s degree, essentially creating unlimited career possibilities in fields such as medicine, business and entertainment.

A timeline tailored to you

  • The program offers one-year, two-year, three-year or four-year track options. Make your choice based on time commitments to your work and personal life as well as prior exposure to computer science.
  • The intense, one-year track is for those who can be full-time students online.
  • Because this is a postbaccalaureate program, students take only the required courses for computer science. 
  • Students can start any term: summer, fall, winter or spring. (Note: Applications for the one-year track are accepted in fall, winter and spring terms only. Learn more about the program's application deadlines.)
  • To enable all the students to get on the fast track, a new course in "introduction to computer science", CS 165, is offered for 8 credits. The course is a combination of introductory courses CS 161 and CS 162, which offer the foundational knowledge for the program. 
  • Please note: This program is very rigorous. You must be resilient and exhibit keen time management skills in order to succeed.

Advantages of an Oregon State University online degree:

  • All program courses are developed and taught by Oregon State employees who are experts in their field.
  • Oregon State is regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
  • OSU Ecampus students receive the same diploma as on-campus students.
