New College of Florida, the small liberal arts college in Sarasota, has been in the news a few times over the past few months, mostly in announcements by college rating organizations that boast the school’s excellent value, unique academic model, affordability, and high percent of students awarded with Fulbright’s and other similar honors. And now, add to the list of recent accolades a big win in the 2014 Session: the addition of the school’s first-ever master’s degree program. This two-year M.Sc. program in Data Science and Analytics will produce 15 graduates per year, and will fill a growing need for graduates in this field in Florida’s workforce.
