I have a computer science degree and have done AI courses and projects. I want to study AI in a good university, probably online because in my country there are no good universities.

Which online AI masters degrees do you recommend me? Do you recommend me to try to study a "normal" master's degree instead of an online one?

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to AI! Although this question would yield answers that are opinion based, so long as those answers are supported, I think that would be acceptable. With so many online courses out there, and the time required for a Masters not insignificant, I think this is a very useful question! $\endgroup$ – DukeZhou Dec 15 '17 at 16:29

If you aren't looking to be accredited, here are some good options:



University of Toronto


If the links are dead, a google search on the relavant course code should yield results.

If you are looking for accreditation, then you might want to try:


But note that in my opinion, the class materials from the links above should be of better quality.

    $\begingroup$ It looks pretty good. I've listed the ones above because I've personally heard good things about them, but personally only skimmed very little of them. $\endgroup$ – k.c. sayz 'k.c sayz' Dec 15 '17 at 19:33

    $\begingroup$ Even so, Stanford, Berkeley and U. Toronto are highly reliable sources than don't require further explanation. $\endgroup$ – DukeZhou Dec 15 '17 at 20:12
  • $\begingroup$ Nice list, despite the fact that they are not masters degrees. $\endgroup$ – user11604 Dec 16 '17 at 13:23

    $\begingroup$ Hannu Rajaniemi got his Mathematical Physics degree at Edinburg before going on to write what many regard as the best AI fiction since Neuromancer. $\endgroup$ – DukeZhou Dec 15 '17 at 20:15
