The Department of Computer Science offers three graduate programs through the Graduate College: a Master's Program, an Accelerated Master's Program (AMP), and an interdisciplinary PhD program.
Master's Program (MS)
The Master's Program (MS) is a traditional two-year degree program that offers both a thesis and a nonthesis option. The Guide to the Master of Science Program in Computer Science describes most features about the master's degree program: admission requirements, when and how to apply, requirements for the MS degree, and teaching and research fellowships.
Interdisciplinary PhD Program
The interdisciplinary PhD program in Computer Science offers study in both traditional and cross-disciplinary areas such as bioinformatics and ecological modeling, and includes graduate assistantships specifically designated for students involved in interdisciplinary areas. The Guide to the Doctor of Philosophy Program in Computer Science describes most features about the PhD program: admission requirements, when and how to apply, requirements for the PhD degree, and teaching and research fellowships.
The Department of Computer Science pursues research in three thrust areas:CS Research.
