The international MSc Program “Quantitative Data Science Methods: Psychometrics, Econometrics, and Machine Learning” (QDS) at University of Tübingen is a unique research-oriented two-year study program designed for students interested in cutting-edge quantitative methods used in these three disciplines and in the flexible transfer of methodologies between them.


Statistical techniques used in the Social and Behavioral Sciences, Economics and Data Science are strongly connected and share an interdisciplinary basis. The collaboration between these disciplines is therefore very important in the context of methods development and application. In the MSc Program “Quantitative Data Science Methods: Psychometrics, Econometrics, and Machine Learning” (QDS) at University of Tübingen we train people who can develop and apply methods at this interdisciplinary intersection.

The core modules introduce quantitative methods in the fields of psychometrics, econometrics and machine learning, as well as providing students with interdisciplinary knowledge in statistics, study design and programming.

Elective modules (such as research-oriented project modules and an ethics module) allow for an individual research focus in an elected area.

Special features of the program are:

  • Individual research projects with possible integration in ongoing research at an early stage (3rd semester).
  • Opportunity to start the Master Thesis early (3rd semester).
  • Studies abroad (3rd semester).
  • All modules are taught in English.
