Graduate Student Computer Literacy

All graduate students are expected to have a working knowledge of, and access to, a basic word processing program such as Microsoft Word; a spreadsheet program such as Excel; e-mail; and access to the Internet.

Graduate students who require further training in the use of Internet services and basic software packages may wish to take one or more of UMUC’s undergraduate computing courses. To obtain a copy of the UMUC Undergraduate Schedule of Classes or speak to an undergraduate advisor, students should call 800-888-UMUC (8682) or contact an advisor. You can also download class schedules and catalogs.

Graduate classes vary in the extent to which computers and software are employed. In some, the primary use is to facilitate communication and ensure basic technology literacy, while in others students are required to use complex software packages.
