    Bridge program for Computer Science degree from a CIS type?

    I have a BS and a MS in CIS type degree programs. A lot of jobs want Computer Science or Computer Engineering . Are there any schools that take what you have and let you just complete the delta's? I would prefer not to do 120 credits over again.. I am thinking 30 would be reasonable.. but I am pretty sure this doesn't exist :$ Thanks for any help.

    Check with ASU online. They allow you to do a second degree just taking the major requirements. They have a Software engineering BS and MS programs.

    I will second nyvrem's opinion. If you already have a BS and MS just go for an MS CS. If you can study on your own for the skills you will need, you shouldn't need to get the Bachelors just supplement the new Masters with your own learning. But understand what those jobs are looking for, they want you to know your stuff in developing software and they will grill you and have you write small programs on the fly in the interview, then explain the rationale and why you would/would not do it that way, with many what if's along the way. Can that be done without a BS, sure. Can you do it? You would have to make that decision.

    As most MS programs only let you bring in 6-12 credits anyways, you could inquire if you could double dip with some from your current degrees. It is rare but it does happen especially when they are two distinct degrees. Which these should be.
