Master's and Doctoral Celebration 2022

The Manning College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) will host its Ms/PhD Celebration on Friday, May 13, 2022, at 12:00 p.m. outside the computer science building. 

There are two separate events for graduates and families on May 13: Graduate Commencement and the Manning College of Information and Computer Sciences MS/PhD Celebration. We hope you will plan on attending both events to celebrate the achievements of our graduate degree recipients. 

The University of Massachusetts Amherst looks forward to celebrating the graduates of the Class of 2022 and welcoming their friends and families to campus. As cases of COVID-19 are increasing in Massachusetts and nationally, we know that our commencement events draw thousands from all over. To protect yourself and others, we strongly encourage all graduates and guests to wear a face-covering when attending any indoor commencement events, regardless of vaccination status.

If you have questions about the CICS MS/PhD Celebration, please email commencement [at] cs.umass.edu.
