Master of Applied Computer Science



Что я буду изучать?

The MACS program is a course-based Masters (full-time) completed over a period of a 16 months or 2 years of full-time study. It is open to students with an undergraduate major in Computer Science, or the equivalent combination of courses. Students have flexibility to select from numerous elective courses to design a master’s program that meets their professional interests and aspirations. Students will also have the option to complete an elective, project-based course in a workplace environment or a co-operative education option. The Department also offers a thesis- based, research-intensive Master’s in Computer Science.


StFX’s Computer Science program is recognized as the top ranked program in Atlantic Canada (Maclean’s Magazine October 2019). It has earned its ranking in part due to the department’s field-weighted citation impact index rank, a measure of research output, for which the group is ranked first in the country. In the Master of Applied Computer Science program, students take advanced courses that will equip them well for working in industry. As well as the course-based program, the department offers a thesis-based Master of Science in Computer Science and undergraduate programs, which contribute to a lively community of computer scientists working and studying together.


One of the cornerstones of this program is the opportunity provided to students to engage in experiential learning, which will help build confidence and gain experience in the field prior to entering the workforce. The program is structured so that real-world problems are embedded throughout the program (in the Computer Science Graduate Seminar course and throughout the elective courses). Additionally, students have the opportunity to complete CSCI 591–Project, providing real-life software development experience by applying classroom learning in a real work context. In CSCI 591, students work with an industry or academic partner and develop a computing a solution to a real-world problem. Students are responsible to manage the project from development to execution to presentation to the client and final review.


Students in the MACS program can apply to complete Co-operative Education (Co-op). Co-op offers paid work experience for students interested in developing a career in various areas within computer science fields and also integrate work experience in their field of interest within their academic studies while earning 6 credits towards their MACS. Students complete professional development seminars and workshops offered through the Co-op department prior to work term placement. This will prepare students to be professional, committed for the challenges of work term placements, and ensure that good relations with employers are fostered, right from the start. Students can apply to Co-op during their first semester of the MACS program. Space is limited.

Вступительные требования

Для студентов, проживающих в Соединенных Штатах

The minimum admission standards are: A bachelor's degree with the equivalent of an undergraduate major (36 credits) normally in the field of study of the program to which you are applying. An honours concentration (60 credits) in the field of study may be required. an overall average of 70 (B) or higher. Minimum required scores: IELTS 6.5. with no band below 6. (IELTS is the preferred test; however, we will consider scores above the following: TOEFL internet 92; Pearson 59).

Для иностранных студентов

Incoming students should have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent with a major in Computer Science or related field. A degree in a related field is acceptable if the applicant shows evidence of a sufficient Computer Science background suitable for entry into the program as determined by the departmental Graduate Committee. The minimum background is the equivalent of all required courses of a StFX Major degree in Computer Science

Students who have completed undergraduate programs in related disciplines (e.g. business information systems) may be eligible for admission. If the applicant is missing some prerequisite courses, acceptance may still be recommended as long as the student has sufficient CS background. Alternatively, a student might be required to take qualifying courses at the undergraduate level.

Admission is competitive. The minimum admission average is 70.

The standard test is the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). A minimum acceptable score of 580 for the written TOEFL or 236 for the computer-based version is required. The following other tests will be accepted with the specified minimum scores: IBT (internet based TOEFL) – 92; MELAB - 90; IELTS – 6.5; CanTest – average of at least 4.5 with no band score lower than 4.0; CAEL – 60 overall, with no band score lower than 50. The TOEFL is waived if the applicant has completed a degree at an institution where the language of instruction is English.
