Master of Science and Graduate Certificate in Data Science
Data Science is an emerging field that aims to extract actionable insights from vast arrays of information. Drawing on techniques and theories from statistics, computer science and mathematics, the program focuses on the effective analysis and use of large data in the natural and social sciences.
The explosion of data in today’s world is rapidly shaping the landscape of our life. This has led to an urgent need to process massive amounts of data and obtain meaningful information. Data scientists are trained to meet such challenges. Through a structured curriculum that provides foundational knowledge as well as application skills, our students learn how to confront the most complex problems facing government and private industry.
