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.
