About Tufts Online MSCS
The Tufts University online Master of Science in Computer Science program stands out from other graduate programs in part because of its highly interdisciplinary nature. Students benefit from working across disciplines that reflect a real-world need for computer science solutions and expertise. From building applications and creating algorithms to securing databases against hackers and developing large-scale software systems — Tufts online MSCS students will be able to gain new skills and experience unique learning opportunities across an array of areas.
Not a Typical Online Class
Students attend live online, interactive sessions each week with Tufts School of Engineering faculty and classmates. Courses enable students to cultivate meaningful relationships with a diverse network of professionals from across the country.
