Please note: Since about 2014, due to various constraints, our on-line course offerings have decreased sharply.  As a result, it has become challenging, and often impossible, for on-line students to find courses each semester that fulfill their expectations and our graduation requirements. While hoping that the situation improves in upcoming years, for the time being, although some courses can be taken on-line, our on-line M.S. program is currently on hold.


As part of University of Hawai‘i Online, we offer aspects of our Masters of Science degree online. The information given on our M.S. Program web pages applies to ALN students as well. Please see those pages for information on applying, degree requirements, etc. This page provides additional information relevant to online students.

The MS  program is well suited to online learning due to its flexibility. There are no prerequisites between our MS-level courses. The only prerequisites pertain to your undergraduate level training in computer science. Deficiencies in your undergraduate training may be removed via our Online Undergraduate Courses. Once you have removed any deficiencies you need not worry about the order in which you take our MS courses. We are working towards offering two regular MS courses each fall and spring term, and supporting directed reading and thesis projects in the summers.
