Data Science has deep roots in computer science, optimization, probability, and statistical inference, and thus it is critical that any Data Science program enjoys a close collaboration between the Department of Statistics and the Department of Computer Science. Rutgers's MSDS program does just that!

The Masters in Data Science Program (MSDS) offers a 30-credit Master’s degree which will provide its graduates with:

  1. A deep understanding of the algorithmic tools and computational infrastructure necessary to manage, explore, and make sense of uncertain and complex data
  2. Computational skills to apply inference principles and prediction techniques to extract actionable value from data repositories
  3. Strong technical skills for data analytics, visualization, and summarization
  4. The necessary communication and leadership skills for successful careers as data science professionals
