Customize Your Graduate Computer Science Degree
At Tufts, graduate computer science students always have the flexibility to pursue their own path. The Tufts Master of Science in Computer Science degree program has multiple tracks that make it easy for you to customize your route to the degree to your particular educational needs. Graduate computer science students looking to complete a more research-oriented degree can write a master's thesis. Those who want a research experience without the full burden of a thesis, or would like to implement a large software project instead of conducting novel research, can choose the project option.

In addition to the Master of Science in Computer Science degree, we also are the home department of the Bioinformatics Track of the interdisciplinary master's program in Bioengineering at Tufts School of Engineering. Apply through the Graduate Programs Website.
