For highly-motivated students, St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers a combined bachelor and master’s degree program in Computer Science and Library and Information Science. The program allows you to complete your undergraduate and graduate degrees in five years of full-time study.

The combination of the two degrees will prepare you for a career managing an information system or computer network in a variety of settings in both the public and private sector. With so much information now housed digitally, employers are seeking professionals with the special knowledge and training to manage that information. The skills you’ll acquire in the Computer Science / Library and Information Science combined degree program will allow you to meet that need.


Please see the requirement chart for the academic progression criteria in this dual degree program.

You should apply for admission to the combined BS/MS program during the second semester of your sophomore year, in consultation with the graduate program director. In order to be eligible for the combined degree program, you must have completed at least 60 credits of undergraduate work with a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 and at least 12 credits of Computer Science courses with a GPA of 3.5 for those classes. You are expected to maintain grades commensurate with the requirements for entry into this combined degree program while matriculated.
