Use data to gain insight and solve problems in the real world.

We’re living in an age where data powers our daily lives, and organizations of all forms and sizes are using data to drive critical decision-making processes.

Gathering this data raises questions about accuracy, privacy, equality, and ethics. Analyzing it requires deep analytical and technical expertise. And using it to inform decisions requires communication and management skills.

These skills have never been in higher demand. In fact, Glassdoor has ranked data scientist as the best job for the last five years in a row. Our program prepares you for this rewarding career and is designed for students looking to gain data analytics expertise, whether you already have a background in technology or are starting a new career path.

As the data science field has grown, specialties within the subject are emerging. That’s why we’ve designed three tracks to allow you to pursue deeper study in a particular aspect of the field. Choose to delve deeper into the business applications of data science through the Data and Business Analytics track. Focus on unstructured language data with the Language Analytics Track. Or explore data collection and data engineering with the Data Pipelines and Platforms Track.

No matter which track you choose, you’ll graduate with the data science skills needed to make an impact on any industry. Complete your program in as little as one year, and see where your degree can take you.

A vibrant learning community.

Connect with leaders in the data science field, forge friendships and connections with peers in your industry, and gain a lifelong network. Life here is active in and outside of the classroom.

Delve deeper, explore farther.

In addition to getting practical, on-the-job experience, you’ll have opportunities to join a research lab or collaborate with faculty on their academic work. Your focus on data science will mean your skills will be in demand on almost any iSchool research team.

The same faculty and coursework, available online.

As leaders in technology, we’ve been teaching online for decades. Our online program combines live weekly classes, multimedia coursework, and collaborative group learning exercises with a platform to help you cultivate lifelong professional relationships with professors and alumni worldwide.

You’ll learn from the same faculty and take the same courses as the on-campus program, and enjoy the same access to the Orange network when you graduate.
