Look at universities available to you and see what you are interested in. A masters just furthers your education in other parts, in computer science it generally focuses on managerial skills and higher level maths. But, no one can tell you what your university programs will offer unless they have been apart of it.

Generally not managerial skills for CS. It's a lot of intense coursework and research. There is a theory component, which is math intensive. There are also other areas like bioinformatics, systems/organization, software engineering, AI/Data Mining, etc. There is a breadth requirement for a Master's. Students usually take 30 hours. Some of that may be research culminating in a thesis. Sometimes the degree track chosen is the coursework option, culminating in a couple PhD prelim exams. Depends on the school, the student, etc.

In terms of finances, you should talk to the department about a teaching assistanceship, or a professor about a research assistanceship. Those usually cover living expenses and come with a tuition waiver. It depends heavily on the school though.

You should talk to your college counselor.


Your Masters can be coursework with some research or it can be alot of research and some coursework, it depends on the program.

Depending on the mode of the Master's Degree that you are pursuing. If its a coursework track then you'll be able to enjoy your semester holidays. However, If you are taking the intensive Research track, then I'd say "bye-bye" to semester holidays... You'll probably be sitting in your lab doing research like a hermit ! Not even realizing that you are in the semester break. -_-

Generally you need to fulfill 30 credits. Most graduate classes are 3 credit hours. You take 7-10 classes and fill in the difference with research. If you take 10 classes, you generally don't do a thesis. The Master's takes generally 1-2 years. Coursework is obviously more intense than undergraduate studies, but it's still coursework. Getting a master's is a bit more intense than senior year if you do coursework, but it's generally like going to school for another couple of years. Even if you do a research option, it still has a similar feel. PhD is where you really get pounded to do research, but that's what you're there for at that point.
