At Notre Dame, we recognize the full picture of what it takes to be successful in data science. Our multidisciplinary Online Master's in Data Science program gives students the edge they need to perform at the highest levels in the field by producing three-dimensional data scientists. A data scientist uses quantitative and computational skills to create value from data – transforming and organizing it; analyzing it using computing, mathematics, and statistics; and converting it into valuable knowledge. But a three-dimensional data scientist complements quantitative and computational data skills with the ability to communicate effectively and act ethically.
The Online Mater's in Data Science program’s courses fit together as parts of an integrated whole, providing students with the technical skills, quantitative aptitude, and analytical insight required by industry. The 30-credit program is divided into 14 credit-earning courses; students take six credits per semester for five consecutive semesters. The program has a structured curriculum, so you won’t have to spend time navigating a complex electives model.
