By working with experts in diverse domains, applying data science to real-world issues, and learning both the practical application of data science and the principles behind it, our students are poised to become leaders and pioneers in the field.

You will learn the foundation of data science, not simply a suite of tools that will quickly become outdated in this rapidly advancing field.

The School of Data Science currently offers residential and online Master of Science in Data Science degree programs. We want to educate students in data science throughout the academic pipeline—from undergraduate to professional—and are working on plans to offer undergraduate, Ph.D., certificate and executive education programs as well.
