About

Data about learning and learners are being generated today on an unprecedented scale. The fields of learning analytics (LA) and educational data mining (EDM) have emerged with the aim of transforming this data into new insights that can benefit students, teachers, and administrators. As one of world's leading teaching and research institutions in education, psychology, and health, we are proud to offer an innovative graduate curriculum dedicated to improving education through technology and data analysis.

Studying with a faculty of internationally recognized experts, students in the Master of Science in Learning Analytics program work with real-world data collected from massive open online courses (MOOCs) and other educational domains. The degree requires 32 credits of coursework on learning analytics methods, tools, and theory, as well as key background in related areas such as cognition, educational theory, and statistics and measurement. Students are also required to complete an integrative project in which they apply data analytics to real-world large-scale educational data sets.
