The M.S. degree in Data Analytics, classified as a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program, is offered in both on-campus and online* formats. On-campus students will have the option of taking online or blended classes as well.
* Admissions to the online program will not be granted to international students residing outside of the U.S.
The M.S. degree in Data Analytics degree aims at providing an interdisciplinary approach to data analytics that covers both the foundational mathematical knowledge of data science and the computational methods and tools for preprocessing, interpreting, analyzing, representing, and visualizing data sets.
The degree is jointly administered by the Departments of Computer Science and Mathematical Sciences. The result is an interdisciplinary curriculum that equips students with the mathematical theory and foundations needed to gather and understand fundamental principles behind the data, and the practical tools and techniques to clean and process data sets, find patterns, and turn data into useful insights
Applicants to both on-campus and M.S. degree in Data Analytics are accepted each fall and spring semesters. The Data Analytics program may, at its own discretion, accept new students in summer semester.
