M.S. in Human-Robot Interaction

In early 2018, the Department of Computer Science received approval to offer a new M.S. degree in Human-Robot Interaction (HRI).

Because this program is new, there is not yet an entry on the application to indicate that you are applying for an HRI M.S. To work around this, please select the M.S. in Computer Science (or the B.S./M.S. in Computer Science, if you are a current Tufts undergraduate) and make sure to refer to the HRI program prominently in the first few lines of your personal statement so that we are clear which program you are applying for. We will be working with Tufts offices over the next few months to fully incorporate the HRI M.S. program. Next semester, we will be able to administratively transition accepted HRI students into the brand-new program.

The core courses are the same as those from the HRI Ph.D. program. More new courses will be coming online soon and we will share further information as soon as it is available. In the meantime, for planning purposes, please note that the following is a partial list of courses that you can count towards your HRI electives:

  • COMP 131: Artificial Intelligence
  • COMP 135: Introduction to Machine Learning
  • COMP 136: Statistical Pattern Recognition
  • COMP 150-CMCS: Computational Models in Cognitive Science
  • COMP 150-NLP: Natural Language Processing
  • COMP 160: Algorithms
  • COMP 171: Human-Computer Interaction
