You'll benefit from working across disciplines on research that reflects real-world needs for computer science solutions in many different industries.

Study with the stars of CS research

What's in a name? Plenty. Tufts computer science faculty members are recognized leaders in their fields and are pioneering innovative research. You'll be working with them in small classes where they will know you by name, not giant lecture halls where you're an anonymous face.

Go high-tech in Boston

What better place to earn your computer science degree than a short subway ride from downtown Boston? The city is a recognized high-tech hub where our students have internship and employment opportunities at a large number of labs and technology companies.
