Computer Science Education at Boston University
The Department of Computer Science has a distinguished track record of academic excellence and major achievement in a vital, fast-changing field. The Department offers a broad range of courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, for both non-majors who want an introduction to computer science, and for students who want to major or minor in computer science.  The Department offers the B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees in computer science, as well as a five-year combined B.A./M.A. degree.

Alumni of our B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. programs land jobs at top technology companies, including Microsoft, Google, Intel, Nortel, and Motorola, as well as other major employers in various sectors of the economy, including Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, Pixar, and Raytheon, etc. Some of our B.A. alumni choose to go on and earn advanced degrees in computer science, law, management, and medicine at some of the best universities in the world. Our graduate students are recruited for internships at leading research laboratories, securing positions at labs such as Sprint, Intel, Motorola, Mitsubishi, VmWare, and Microsoft. A number of our Ph.D. alumni are now tenure-track professors and postdoctoral researchers at top universities.
