Before continuing, please read the Brown CS 2020-21 Plan, which may replace some of the information below.
We offer one of the best environments in the world for both research and education. Our faculty, students, resources, and location are just some of the reasons why you should study at Brown CS.
This consists of a doctoral program and two Master's programs, the Master of Science in Computer Science and the Master of Science in Cybersecurity. The latter is a fully online, global degree that can be completed from anywhere in the world. Doctoral students can earn a Master's degree automatically, but students admitted for a Master's don't automatically transition to the PhD track.
The Data Science Initiative also offers a Master's program that prepares students from a wide range of backgrounds for careers in data science. Rooted in a research collaboration among four very strong departments (Applied Mathematics, Biostatistics, Computer Science, and Mathematics), it offers a rigorous, distinctive, and attractive education for people building careers in data science and/or big data management.
Our undergraduate program pioneered the idea of undergrads contributing to teaching and research at a time when few universities even offered CS courses. Today, no other institution gives students the same opportunities to be part of the university's intellectual life, benefit from a community of collaborators, and advance the field. Undergraduate students also have the option of staying a fifth year to obtain a Masters degree.
