Plan of Studies Overview 

Students in the Master of Science in Computer and Information Science with an Integrated Practicum specialization choose one primary focus and one secondary focus. Students complete up to four graduate credit hours of integrated practicum, normally one credit per semester, where each credit hour requires about 100 hours of effort.

Marquette University is committed to help students find practicum placements for each of the three semesters at Marquette University and has allocated resources for this purpose. After graduation, students will have the possibility to stay in the US to complete an internship or gain work experience with an Optional Practical Training (OPT) extension or a STEM OPT extension, which allows them to work in the US for up to 12 months (OPT) or up to 24 months (STEM OPT).
