Earn a degree in Computer Science or Human-Robot Interaction. Forget everything you've heard about computer science departments that limit you to a narrow path of study or herd students into large lecture halls where you get lost in the crowd. We do things differently at Tufts.

We provide students with the best of both worlds: a student-centered experience at a top-notch research university. You’ll join small classes and immerse yourself in cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research led by innovative faculty.

Two convenient schedules:

Full time: Complete your M.S. degree in only one year, or in two years with an optional thesis.

Part time: Fit classes around your schedule and earn your degree while you’re advancing your career.

Program highlights:

  • Small class sizes
  • Personalized path of study
  • Mentorship from professors at the top of their fields
  • Collaborative research that crosses disciplines
  • Five miles from the high-tech hub of Boston

Application requirements:

  • Application
  • $85 application fee
  • Academic records and resume/CV
  • Personal statement
  • Letters of recommendation
  • GRE scores may be waived for part-time M.S. students with five years of industry experience who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Visit for complete details.
