At this Data Science program offered by Saint Mary's College, you'll develop a strong mathematical base - an enduring skill set in an ever-changing world - that will allow you to take on complex data challenges now and in the future, no matter what programming language you're using.


What You Will Learn

  • Analysis of large, complex data sets in the context of real-world business problems
  • Application and fine tuning of computing resources for data analysis, including programming and industry-standard tool use
  • Development and implementation of data analysis strategies based on theoretical principles and detailed knowledge of the underlying data
  • Generation of actionable intelligence for decision making
  • Clear and professional communication of nuanced analysis results to a diverse, varyingly technical audience
  • Rigorous application of mathematical principles to the analysis of data
  • Evaluation, implementation, and the assessment of the application of technology 
  • solutions for data analysis

To you, data isn’t merely numbers. It has the potential to provide solutions that improve efficiency and effectiveness—even lives—through its application. In our Master of Science in Data Science program at Saint Mary's College, a Professional Science Master’s (PSM) program, you'll develop into a professional practitioner with deep analytical skills. Become a well-rounded individual who has deep knowledge in data science coupled with the ability to communicate effectively and manage projects. 

PSM programs combine rigorous study of mathematics or science with workplace skills like communication and project management. You'll take courses in applied statistics with an application-focused approach to regression analysis and related techniques - knowledge companies prize in data scientists - as well as understand the algorithms of data mining, processing, and visualization. Engage in a real-world practicum that involves developing data analysis tools and applying them to a pressing need at an organization. Most important, you'll learn to manipulate data rather than performing simple surface analysis.
