Fall semester 2017, the Department of Computer Science at Texas State University began offering a Ph.D. program. This program integrates cutting-edge research, innovation, and entrepreneurship to prepare students for multiple career paths. It was the first in Texas to offer a doctoral education in computer science with formalized business training.

The program has two tracks: Information Management and Software Systems. A total of 54 semester credit hours (SCH) are required for a student entering with a master’s degree and 78 SCH for a student entering with a bachelor’s degree. Additional requirements include two one-week boot camps, a qualifying exam, a comprehensive exam, and programming competency skills.

The program accepts both full-time and part-time students. It focuses on the following key areas of applied computing of national priority: computer security and networking, data analytics and management, high-performance computing, human-computer interaction, informatics, and software engineering.

Generally, the fall application deadline is February 1.  Thus, the 2019 priority application deadline for admission consideration would be February 1, 2019.
