Department of Computer Science


Students working on a medical device app.

Pursue your Ph.D. in Computer Science, or a joint Ph.D. in Cognitive Science or Human-Robot Interaction, at Tufts. We offer Ph.D. programs known for their personal attention in the dynamic academic atmosphere of the Boston area.

Our faculty are leaders in their disciplines, with strong research groups in both established and novel research areas. In addition to core computer science, the faculty are heavily involved in multi-disciplinary research, which is widespread at Tufts and strongly supported by the university.

Admission to the Ph.D. program is granted at the department level, not to individual faculty members’ research groups (though if you already know who you might want to work with, please tell us on your application).
