Graduate Certificate in Data Science

Data Science, and the associated areas referred to as big data and data analytics, is a rapidly emerging technology field fueled by the dramatic growth in the amount of data involved in most areas of society. The12-credit graduate certificate in data science program allows students to study fundamental ideas that underlie large data systems and document a knowledge base for work in data intensive jobs. Credit earned in the certificate program may be applied to the master of science in the field of data science degree program.

Specific admission requirements can be found on the Graduate Program Finder.
