Brown vs. UMass Computer Science


Recommended Posts

I’m deciding between the new Brown Masters in Data Science program and the UMass Amherst Masters in computer science (within which you can concentrate in data science).

I’m inclined to UMass because it’s a more flexible program (I may still decide I want to pursue a PhD), and I really like the town of Amherst. But my Undergrad advisor says Brown has a better reputation and I should reconsider. Looking for opinions/recommendations, thanks.

The Brown Masters in data science is a specific sequence of courses, which is different than their Masters in computer science. The UMass program is a Masters in computer science with possible concentrations in data science or cybersecurity, with a professional or research focus.
