Student outcomes for this program will be the following:
- Demonstrated ability to apply mathematical and statistical principles to the analysis of data
- Demonstrated ability to develop and implement data analysis strategies base on theoretical principles, ethical considerations, and detailed knowledge of the underlying data
- Demonstrated ability to identify and classify relevant variables to develop appropriate machine learning and statistical models for effective actionable insight into the underlying data
An additional criterion specific to graduate programs is that students demonstrate an ability to apply masters level knowledge to the specialized area of data science. Students will be required to maintain a reasonably high level of performance while enrolled in the program. Students must achieve a B- or better in all required classes for the MS degree and graduate with a GPA of 3.2 or higher.
