Information Science & Technology, B.S./M.S.

The +1 Bachelor of Science in Information Science and Technology and Master of Science in Information Science and Technology is an accelerated program within the College of Science and Technology. High achieving IS&T majors with at least 4 semesters at Temple are qualified to apply to the +1 Accelerated Program.    

  • Students may apply to the accelerated degree program after completing a progress review in CST advising and meeting with the Faculty advisor. These steps must be completed during the Spring of the Junior year. In addition to having a GPA of 3.5 or higher, applicants must be able to complete their B.S. degree within one year of program entry and also be able to complete at least 99 credits (including MATH 2031 Probability and Statistics, CIS 3329 Network Architectures, and CIS 3342 Server-Side Web Application Development) before the start of their Senior year. 
  • During their Senior year, students take 24 credits, 9 credits of which are graduate. These 9 graduate credits count three ways: (a) as general undergraduate credit, (b) as upper level undergraduate IS&T elective credit, (c) as graduate credit.
  • After their Senior year, students receive their undergraduate degree, then are formally admitted to the graduate program (with 9 graduate credits already completed).
  • During their +1 year, students take an additional 21 graduate credits to earn the Master's degree.

Interested students should contact their advisor for details. For more information, see the following program pages: Information Science & Technology B.S. and Information Science & Technology M.S. and the CIS Department's Graduate Page.
