M.S. Data Science Program

With the M.S. in Data Science program, students receive strong foundations in computer science, mathematics, and statistics.  While focusing on foundations of data science, the program provides flexibility for student to choose courses of interest.  The program requires 30 credits spread across ten 3-credit courses.  Students are required to take one core course in each discipline and a minimum of two courses from each: computer science, mathematics, and statistics.  However, additional course work can align with student interest.
