The thesis-based master’s Computer Science degree offered by the University of Arizona is designed for students considering research-based careers after their masters, as well as students who want to try out research while considering whether they may continue in a doctoral program. Interested students should talk to relevant faculty about this option before entering into their last year, as they will need to identify a faculty advisor for the thesis.
Students who successfully complete an MS degree may command a higher salary and positions with more authority and autonomy in industry.
