Applied Data Science master’s degree program

The Master’s in Applied Data Science is a 2-year program that consists of 36 credit hours spanning four semesters. The curriculum offers a blend of interdisciplinary theory and practical application of skills through courses, such as Exploratory Data Analysis, Applied Machine Learning, and Data Visualization.  Our students gain experience applying both R and Python to develop solutions for our corporate partners as a part of the rigorous curriculum.

In the final semester, students will implement their skills and obtain industry experience with a paid practicum working full-time as part of a data science team at one of our corporate partners, or at another company or organization of their choice. The practicum course will be completed under Data Science faculty supervision and is a required component of the program.  At the end of the program, students would have gained the industry knowledge, technical skills, and real-world experience required to start their successful careers.
