The M.S. in Data Analytics 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 offered in both on-campus and online* formats. Applications are accepted each spring and fall semester. The Data Analytics program may, at its own discretion, accept new students in the summer semester, and consider accepting students under conditional admission, thereby allowing students to take classes at UIS to complete the program’s entrance requirements. Upon the completion of all entrance requirements, the student will be fully admitted.

* F1- students must have completed a course in data structures and algorithms to be considered for admission to the master’s degree program.

** Admissions to the online program will not be granted to international students residing outside of the U.S.
