georgia tech online masters in computer science
Georgia tech online masters in computer science: The Georgia Institute of Technology and Udacity.com have teamed up to provide an acknowledged master’s of science in computer science ( press release). What is unique about this program is the fact that this MSCS is at a top institution, completely in online mode, and the entire tuition cost for all classes will be less than $7,000. Georgia Tech believes that it will be able to do this because of technological advances and the ability that they have to maintain a ratio of instructor to the student that is 1:100 instead of 1:10.
Students can enroll in the course online, but if you are looking for a degree with an accredited accreditation and grades, you’ll have to be admitted into the program. Because AT&T will be financing the pilot program for 2014, It is likely that the majority of participants will be from AT&T as well as other companies that are affiliated with Georgia Tech, with enrollment likely to increase in the coming years. This is still an important step in the development of online learning and particularly beneficial for students seeking to further their education but cannot afford to enroll full-time as campus students.
If this is successful, it’d be natural to wonder about a cheap, 100% online bachelor’s degree from a major public university (not some regionally accredited/for-profit diploma mill). I’m trying to the following excerpt of Is College a Lousy Investment? by Megan McArdle.
Do these online degrees have the same esteem, just with the cost of tuition, or will it diminish the value of a college degree more? Or will a degree from a campus always be considered superior?
