Never Miss an Opportunity

Fully Funded PhD in Computer Science

Students admitted into the PhD-only program usually arrive at UMass having already earned an MS degree at an accredited University. Ph.D. students are required to pass 6 core requirements, complete 18 credits (credits include core courses taken to pass core requirements), and 18 Dissertation Credits.

Our doctoral program provides assistantships for students during their first full year and during each academic semester following the first year. The assistantship provides a tuition waiver and 95% discount on the UMass Amherst health insurance plan.

PhD in Computer Science Program Requirements

The College expects that students starting work toward a PhD have a solid undergraduate background and Master’s level background in Computer Science. Admission is very competitive. We typically accept 10 to 15% of students applying to our graduate programs.

Backgrounds vary: we have students from engineering, math, computer science, electrical engineering, psychology and social sciences. With such a diverse group, an emphasis is placed on letters of recommendation, the personal statement, and GPA.

PhD Funding Coverage

For PhD and MS/PhD track students, it is our policy to provide financial aid (assistantships) to those admitted students requesting it (with occasional exceptions).

Stipends (9 month or 12 month) come in the form of Research/Teaching Assistantships. For example, stipends for the Academic Year 2022-2023 are $27,428.40 for 9 month appointments.

All PhD students are guaranteed funding for the entire first year (Fall, Spring, Summer) with a stipend of $37,533.60. PhD funding is contingent upon a student making satisfactory academic progress and teaching while in their program.
