Welcome to the Brandeis CS Department

Brandeis hosts world-class research in the setting of a medium-sized university located only 7 miles from Boston. It is part of the vibrant industrial and research community of the greater Boston/Cambridge area, and a member of the Association of American Universities ranked in the top 35 by US News.

The Computer Science department has 12 regular faculty members with diverse research interests, plus several teaching faculty and research associates.  Our outstanding undergraduates attain positions across industries as well as entrance into elite graduate schools. The department benefits from collaborative opportunities within the University and the greater Boston area, as course offerings are extended through a consortium of other universities. 

Jordan PollackWe offer the BA and BS in CS, as well as several MA programs, including an innovative MA for Non-Majors, a two-year program to help those majoring in the sciences and humanities transition into the software fields. Our PhD program is competitive and offers full assistantships to top students who can be matched to the research areas of the faculty.  The department hosts the interdisciplinary theoretical Linguistics major, and our Master's program in Computational Linguistics is nationally recognized.
