Notre Dame has a history of pioneering new research and inventions. The aerodynamics of glider flight, the transmission of wireless messages and the formula for synthetic rubber were all pioneered at our University. Therefore, it was a natural fit to develop an academically rigorous master’s degree program for an emerging field with immense growth potential–data science.
The application of data science is at the forefront of modern research, impacting science, government, business, healthcare and more. In keeping with our standards of excellence and innovation, the online Master of Science in Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics: Data Science Specialization program from Notre Dame gives students the edge they need to perform at the highest levels in this field.
Notre Dame’s MS-ACMS: Data Science program does not require an undergraduate degree in a quantitative or technical field, making it accessible to professionals from every background. Applicants may use our free Data Science Readiness Assessment to evaluate their preparedness for the degree.
In addition to admissions requirements, the curriculum overview, tuition, logistics and other details are included in our prospectus brochure.
Our MS-ACMS: Data Science program offers the flexibility of online learning classes shaped by real world applications, programs, and projects. Small classes with leading faculty and interactive online and in-person groups are combined to provide a student-centered learning approach.
