In the computer science department at Dartmouth, graduate students interact closely with world-class researchers in a tight-knit, collegial environment that provides abundant opportunities for both intra- and interdisciplinary research. We actively collaborate with researchers in engineering, business, mathematics, the arts, biology, sociology, and medicine. Our department also boasts small class sizes, award-winning instructors, and a lively departmental spirit. All students have access to state-of-art facilities and opportunities to start research the first year.
Our doctoral program is a full-time program: Admitted doctoral students have only the Ph.D. as their degree objective, and they have guaranteed funding for up to five years.
We've recently restructured the M.S. program:
Instead of a required thesis, all students will start out in a coursework-only track, and move to a thesis track if it makes sense.
We've also streamlined the program to encourage Ph.D. students in other departments to concurrently pursue a COSC M.S. degree – and also to encourage Dartmouth undergraduates to remain for an M.S. degree.
Dartmouth is situated in Hanover, on the Connecticut River, in the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire. It is a beautiful, historic campus, located in a scenic, year-round, outdoor recreational area. Dartmouth hosts an annual film festival; renowned musical and theatrical performers; and convenient public transportation to Boston, New York, and Montreal, as well as local airports.
