Masters in Computer Science in USA (Bachelors in Pharmacy)

My name Sathish. I completed B.Pharmacy with 71%. I want to study USA. I;m from pharma and I’m interested towards Software.

Is There is any Chance to go Computers? If It is there, please Inform to me.  

Actually is it possible  to change from Bachelors in Pharmacy to Computer Science field in USA.

Pharmacy to Computer Science (M.S.)

Ofcourse you can change from B.Pharm to MS in Computer Science.

That’s the beauty of Higher Education system in America.

To learn more about changing majors, read the following posts

For Pharmacy to Computer Science, you have to go through similar process. Unfortunately, you have to spend time, learn about the admission requirements, find colleges and submit application. If you don’t want to go through that process, then you can work with consulting companies.

Here’s another video interview, where you can learn how Prashant changed department half way through Masters.

      Sure. You will have several Pre-Requiseties courses and MS will be about 3 years long. But, its possible.

    American education system is flexible. Anyone can opt any major irrespective of their previous area of study. Since you are going for different major u must know some of the basics which others know. So you are supposed to take pre-requisites which are really helpful. Hope you find software field interesting. Post your experiences about change in field from pharmacy to computer science. All the best.

    Only thing is that since you are changing majors between undergrad and grad school, you may be asked to take pre-requisites (that is in addition to the number of courses/subjects you have to take to get your masters degree.). It’d be helpful for you to look out for how pre-requisites are paid for. Some universities wont treat the pre-requisites any different and ask you to pay full tuition fee for it. Some other univerisities will put a grade requirement (like a minimum b+) or a graduation requirement, upon which, you’ll be refunded the amount you paid for pre reqs.
