  • CS 8xx (3 cr hrs)
  • CS 8xx (3 cr hrs)
  • CS 8xx (3 cr hrs)
  • CS 8xx (3 cr hrs)
  • CS 8xx (3 cr hrs)
  • CS 8xx (3 cr hrs)
  • CS* (3 cr hrs)
  • CS* (3 cr hrs)
  • CS/non-CS* (3 cr hrs)
  • CS/non-CS* (3 cr hrs)
  • CS 900 (0 cr hrs)
  • CS 900 (0 cr hrs)

* up to two of these may be 400-level classes (others are 800-level)

Co-op Designation Requirements

  • Be registered full-time in the Computer Science (MSc) program
  • Complete at least four (4) University of Regina Grad level Computer Science (CS) courses
  • Obtain a minimum grade of 75% in the above courses

Note: Acceptance to a Co-op work term is subject to the approval of the Co-op Grad Coordinator. Attaining a Co-op work term is a competitive process through the Career Centre. Credit hours earned on a work term are extra to the credit hours required in the Thesis-based, Project-based and Course-based Masters programs.

Pre-Approved Non-Computer Science Courses

The following courses have been pre-approved and will satisfy the non-CS course requirement in all CS graduate programs listed above.
