Starting next fall, St. John Fisher College will offer a new master of science degree in applied data science.
Housed in the School of Arts and Sciences, the program is designed to provide recent graduates or mid-career professionals seeking to enhance their statistics or quantitative backgrounds the opportunity to develop their data analytics and data science acumen.
Applications are currently being accepted for the fall 2017 cohort.
Geared toward students with a background in the humanities, social sciences, business, education, or health care, the program is focused on providing a solid foundation in applied data science and sharpening quantitative and data analysis skills.
The 36 credit-hour program will be offered in evening and hybrid classes to accommodate a full-time work schedule. Courses will cover concepts including calculus, computer science, statistics, exploratory data analysis, databases, visualization and communication, and web analytics, among others.
Candidates will also do a two-semester independent project, allowing them to apply their data science skills to an in-depth problem of their choosing or of relevance to their current work environment.
A breakfast information session is schedule for 8 to 9 a.m. on June 15 in the Golisano Gateway Midlevel at St. John Fisher College, 3690 East Ave., Pittsford.
