strong research culture in what though? There's over 20 distinct research focuses for ms faculties these days. best to go with programs that have good reputation in the field you want, since they are more likely to have best professor and facilities in the same.

My masters will be generic but I hope to explore via courses in my masters and figure out an area of interest eventually. So I would prefer universities that encourage a research environment in general.

What you are looking for is a school where the courses generally have a research component and faculty are actively involved in research, which is the case in most good programs.

However, here is a small list at the top of my head:

1. William & Mary --> moderate (I am a faculty here. The CS dept. is strong in terms of research. Small department, but _very_ research-focused.)

2. NC State --> moderate (I did my PhD here. Huge department; many faculty are actively involved in research, but you will have to look. Most courses are not very research-oriented, but great coursework nevertheless).

3. UC Boulder --> moderate

4. USC --> ambitious
