USC M.S. Computer Science New Student Orientation

There is a 1 hour segment which is required viewing for all on campus CS master’s students, and an additional 25 minute segment for International students. Then the CS faculty introduce the various specializations. You can pick and choose which specialization videos to watch based on your admitted program or any specializations you are interested in learning about.

The content of these videos are now a few years old, but we've left them available as some information is still relevant and helpful.  New students should attend all orientation, welcome, and group advising events for the latest information and to have their questions answered by the department advisors.
