The Bachelor of Science in Data Science studies the collection, manipulation, storage, retrieval, and computational analysis of data in its various forms. You’ll gain knowledge in exploratory data analysis and manipulation, large-scale data storage, predictive analytics, machine learning, data mining, and more. The program combines computer science, mathematics, statistics, and probability theory into an integrated curriculum that prepares you for careers or graduate studies in big data analysis, DS, and data analytics.

Data drives. You lead. Data has become one of the most critical tools in shaping our economy, society, and culture. Now more than ever we need people who can understand this untapped resource and draw conclusions so vital to future success. We developed our Master’s in Data Science with that, and your current background, in mind. As an interdisciplinary program between the Khoury College of Computer Sciences and the College of Engineering, you’ll develop comprehensive expertise in mathematics, computing, and data engineering so you can take your data career to the next level.

If you don’t have a background in data science or computing, then the Align MS in Data Science might be for you. It offers a direct path to a master’s degree in data science, regardless of your background.

The Bachelor of Science in Analytics program prepares you for success in a wide variety of industries through the mastery of cutting-edge techniques, technologies, and modes of reasoning for analyzing, managing, and describing data.

The Master of Professional Studies in Analytics prepares you to analyze data and identify trends to support tactical and strategic decision making.
