The Computer and Information Sciences Department offers the following graduate programs through the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS):

GSAS Admissions (for Master's in Computer Science)
GSAS Admissions (for Master's in Cybersecurity)

Masters in Computer Science

Blending the analytical, practical and theoretical, the Master's program in Computer Science begins with a solid foundation in computing, information and systems. Students work closely with a faculty in such specialties as communication and networks, telecommunication network design, object-oriented databases for large systems, artificial intelligence, data mining, cybersecurity, bioinformatics, information retrieval systems, and the design and analysis of algorithms.

New York City's status as the world's financial capital, media hub and major center of the software and website development industry provides graduates of this program with wide-ranging career opportunities, often facilitated by internships during the course of study. Research facilities include the Informatics & Data Mining Lab, the Wireless Sensor Data Mining Lab, the Networking Lab, and the Robotics & Computer Vision Lab as well as an 88-core high-performance computing cluster and other state of the art equipment and software. GSAS Computer Science classes are held, with minor exceptions, at the Lincoln Center campus in Manhattan. Most classes start after 4 p.m. for the convenience of those who work.

The MSCS program requires 30 credits and can be completed by a full-time student in 3 or 4 semesters. For more information about program requirements, check the detailed MSCS degree requirements.
