MCS Student Experience


Coursera partners with leading Universities to deliver the world’s best online degree programs.

The Online Master of Computer Science program is fully developed and taught by Arizona State University, conducted by the same faculty teaching on-campus MCS. Arizona State University leverages Coursera’s online education platform to deliver the program curriculum. MCS students benefit from Coursera features such as interactive video transcription, in-course note taking, and seamless learning across multiple devices.

Degrees on Coursera are powered by technology that empowers you to learn on your schedule and on the device of your choice. Courses are made up of modules designed to be completed during commutes or other short periods of spare time. Courses include supplementary readings, video lectures, assignments, and discussion forums that help you spark connections with your peers.

Students will also attend live classroom sessions with professors, participate in group projects using Zoom and Slack, and access instructors during live office hours. Faculty are hands-on and interactive in classes and projects, holding weekly live class sessions that cover multiple time zones across the world.


Lectures are organized into weekly modules, accessed via video playback or interactive transcript. Pace yourself through online lectures before meeting with the professor and classmates to dive deeper into the material.


Access courses from anywhere — download them to your mobile device and study offline anywhere at any time.


Interact with fellow students through course forums. Access every question asked and answered by previous students.

Coursera does not grant credit, and does not represent that any institution other than the degree granting institution will recognize the credit or credential awarded by the institution; the decision to grant, accept, or transfer credit is subject to the sole and absolute discretion of an educational institution.

We encourage you to investigate whether this degree meets your academic and/or professional needs before applying.
