Graduate Programs

The graduate program in Computer Science was inaugurated in 1975. Beginning as a combined Computer Science/Mathematics masters degree, students now complete an M.S. in CS. A new doctoral program in Computer Science and Informatics began in Fall 2007.

The Emory Computer Science and Informatics (CSI) PhD program is building on strengths and recent growth in data-oriented areas of computer science, with main research concentrations are in Data Science and Biomedical Informatics. ​

The Emory CSI program integrates collaborative opportunities with the Emory School of Medicine, Rollins School of Public Health, the Woodruff Library, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Data Science research in the program includes large-scale data systems and analytics, information retrieval and web search, natural language processing, privacy and security, and scientific computing. Biomedical Informatics research focuses on effective use of biomedical data, information, and knowledge in medical research as well as decision support driven by efforts to improve human health. Graduate student research in BMI can directly impact patient care, and influence both clinical and biomedical research.

The CSI program is jointly administered by the Departments of Mathematics and Computer Science, Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, and Biomedical Informatics. The CSI faculty maintain active, interdisciplinary research programs, and have been recently recognized with multiple best paper awards, NSF CAREER, NIH K01, A.P. Sloan Research Fellowship, and other awards.
