    The 10 course interdisciplinary MS in Data Analytics is designed to serve students in a broad range of fields. The overall structure allows for an in-depth exploration of data analytics based on individual interests. This flexibility enables students to select elective courses based on their areas of interest and professional goals.

    Certificate Programs

    The four course Certificate in Data Analytics is ideal for students who wish to earn a credential in data analytics, but who may not need or be ready to commit to a full master’s program. The program provides a background in the skills needed to make data-driven decisions. Students who complete the certificate program and decide to continue on and apply to the MS in Data Analytics program can apply credits earned in the certificate toward the master’s program requirements, if they are accepted into the master’s program.
