The University of Minnesota is now accepting applications for Fall 2015 for a new Master's of Science degree in Data Science.

This is a rigorous degree for the modern digital age, for students who want to learn state-of-the-art methods to manage and analyse Big Data, and the theory behind the methods.

Students in this program will learn cutting-edge methods to manage, analyse, and find patterns hidden within big data, through the same regular coursework taken by graduate students in Statistics, Computer Science, Biostatistics, Electrical Engineering, etc. Most of the coursework is open to remote off-campus students through our interactive instructional video system. A Capstone project will enable students to use what they learn on real-world problems.
