USF offers a three-year MS in Computer Science Bridge program that provides a unique opportunity for motivated students from a non-computer science background to pursue a Master's in Computer Science. Students who successfully complete the first year of preparatory classes then continue in the standard two-year MS in Computer Science program.

Real-World Experience - By completing an internship at a technology company, working on a faculty research project, or contributing to an open-source project, the practicum course helps students gain real world experience.

San Francisco Advantage - Located in the heart of San Francisco and close to Silicon Valley, which boasts more tech companies than any other region in the US.

Faculty - Comprising of distinguished researchers and accomplished experts from the Bay Area’s tech companies, the MSCS faculty bring real world computing experience into the classroom.

Small Classes - Close interaction with full-time faculty is a hallmark of the program. Our cohort model enhances the experience during our students’ first year, allowing them to take core courses at the same time.

International Students - may be eligible to work for 36 months in the U.S. after completion of the MSCS program via the OPT program and STEM extension.

Who Can Apply?

Applicants with basic introductory programming background in variables, control structures, structured data types, and functions are eligible to apply. These prerequisites can be completed through introductory programming courses at a local community college, university, online, or through self-study.

The Art and Science of Health Data Analytics

USF’s Master of Science in Health Informatics program is focused on training the next generation of informaticists in the art and science of health data analytics. Healthcare and technical professionals learn everything from the basics of programming to cutting-edge statistical and machine learning methods in interprofessional, project-based classrooms.

Two tracks are available for students to pursue. Students may follow a track, or take any combination of courses that best suit their goals:

• Health Data Analytics - for students who want advanced training in data science
• Clinical Informatics - for clinicians and executives who are preparing for leadership positions

We seek highly motivated students who have a passion for improving healthcare through the application of data science and information technology. Our ideal student will have either:

• Clinical background (e.g., MD, RN, DPT, PsyD, PharmD, Allied Health, other post-baccalaureate clinical degree, or equivalents)
• Science or Engineering background with an interest in healthcare
• Healthcare Executives, Health IT leaders, and others involved in healthcare that wish to gain broad and deep knowledge in Health Informatics.
• Strong academic background, passion for healthcare, and quantitative aptitude

Program Features

REAL-WORLD PROBLEMS IN THE CLASSROOM

Classroom projects engage interdisciplinary teams of students to tackle real-world problems from faculty research or industry partners.

PROGRAMMING AND DATA ANALYTICS SKILLS

All students, regardless of background, learn programming skills in the context of working with healthcare data.

ENTREPRENEURIAL PERSPECTIVE

Located in the epicenter of the global digital revolution, our program engages with the Silicon Valley startup community. Interested students are given startup mentoring opportunities.

INTERNSHIP AND PRACTICUM OPPORTUNITIES

Students are required to complete a Capstone Experience consisting of original research, substantial project in health and biomedical informatics, or an internship with industry partner. We provide support for students in finding their internships and projects.

ADVANCED CLINICAL TRAINING

Clinically trained students are able to take graduate level nursing courses that fully count toward an advanced nursing degree including Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) or Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) at USF.

Job Outcomes

Our graduates are well-prepared for current and future challenges in this field. Importantly, our graduates have the technical skill to work with computer scientists and programmers, and a deep understanding of the healthcare environment to work with doctors, nurses, psychologists, and other healthcare professionals.

Our graduates have found opportunities in large hospitals or medical centers, research institutions, startups, government health agencies, and global health organizations. Positions have included Clinical Data Analyst, Director of Clinical Informatics Research, Statistical Analyst, Senior Programmer Analyst and Advanced Research or Clinical training (MD, DNP, PhD in Biomedical Informatics).

Why get a dual degree in public and behavioral health?

The MPH-MSBH dual degree has been designed to prepare practitioners who are committed to eliminating health disparities, working with vulnerable populations, and creating social and physical environments that promote good health for all. This program is ideal for students who want a broad, in-depth knowledge base in public health with an emphasis on behavioral health skills. Courses are practice oriented and applied skills are emphasized. Dual degree students graduate with the knowledge to design, implement, and lead evidence-based health care and community programs.

The dual degree requires approximately 60 units. Full-time, dual degree students should be able to complete their course work in 6 semesters (24 months). Students can attend on a part-time basis and spread the program over three years. The course sequence can be adjusted on an individual basis.

On completing the dual degree program, graduates will have two degrees: Both the Master of Public Health and the MS in Behavioral Health. By pursuing this dual degree option, students will achieve a substantial savings in time and credits over completing these two degrees separately.

The dual degree has been designed to help students understand and address the social, emotional and environmental determinants of health and wellbeing. The program stresses the needs of underserved and at-risk populations. It teaches students how to implement and monitor programs; set up budgets, timelines and tracking tools; and write a grant proposal. Students also learn about ethics and policy, research methods, epidemiology, and statistical analysis and their roles in program development.

There is substantive focus on how to develop evidence-based interventions that have a high likelihood of success, use behavior change theory and holistic models and frameworks, and are based on community needs and assessment.
