The 2002 College World Series was held June 14 through June 22, 2002 in Omaha, Nebraska. Eight NCAA Division I college baseball teams met after having played their way through a 64-team bracket to play at historic Rosenblatt Stadium. Texas beat South Carolina in the last single-game final before the format was switched to a best-of-three series in 2003.

It was the 56th College World Series and the 53rd series held in Omaha. The official host for the event was nearby Creighton University.
