Dual Degrees

Dual Professional MS / Engineering Management 

The Department of Computer Science and the Engineering Management Program have teamed up to offer a dual degree option for students pursuing a Professional Master's in computer science. The option is available to all Professional MS students, except those who are pursuing the human-centered computer (HCC) sub-plan.  

Dual ME / Engineering Management

Also offered in conjunction with the Engineering Management Program, this degree is tailored for working engineers who aren't able to attend classes on campus. 

Dual MS / MBA Program

To support the university's mission of advancing knowledge across disciplines and in recognition that business education and training has relevance to many academic fields, the Leeds School of Business and the Department of Computer Science endorse a Dual Degree Program in which both a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Science in Computer Science are awarded to those students who satisfy the requirements.

Interdisciplinary Programs

Many of our faculty and graduate students are involved in interdisciplinary research with groups like the ATLAS Institute, the BioFrontiers Institute, the Department of Linguistics and the Institute of Cognitive Science.

Certificate in Human Language Technology

The Interdisciplinary Certificate in Human Language Technology is jointly sponsored by Computer Science, the Center for Computational Language and Education Research, and the departments of Linguistics; Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering; and Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences. It provides a rich and broad background for students interested in computational tools for human language processing. The curriculum covers areas such as computer speech recognition, natural language processing, text-based information retrieval and web-based dialog agents.

This master's-level certificate is available to enrolled CU Boulder master’s or PhD students in computer science; linguistics; electrical, computer and energy engineering; and speech, language and hearing sciences, including students in the five-year concurrent BS/MS in computer science. Interested computer science students should contact the HLT curriculum committee member for computer science, Professor James Martin.

Professional Master's in Computational Linguistics, Analytics, Search and Informatics (CLASIC)

This is a unique interdisciplinary degree that provides a solid foundation in both computer science and linguistics graduate course work as well as several courses focused on data-driven linguistics, computational linguistics and information processing. CLASIC is aimed at preparing students for careers in areas such as predictive text messaging, search engines, question-answering, interactive virtual agents and machine translation. Many of the courses are available online. Visit their Graduate School webpage or the Linguistics website for more information.

Certificate in Interdisciplinary Quantitative Biology

The PhD certificate program in Interdisciplinary Quantitative Biology (IQ Biology) is a University of Colorado cross-departmental program and part of the BioFrontiers Institute. CS is a participating department. For graduate students with a strong quantitative or biological background, IQ Biology offers a diverse interdisciplinary experience through lab rotations, curriculum and programs.
