Welcome to UNC Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science was one of the first in the United States to be established as an independent computer science department. It was founded in 1964 by Dr. Frederick P. Brooks Jr. Many of his founding philosophies still guide us. He believed strongly in creating an atmosphere of cooperation, where students are seen as colleagues to faculty members.
Our department's primary missions are research and graduate and undergraduate teaching. We offer B.S., B.A., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in computer science.
