A bachelor's degree in a STEM field, including Mathematics, Science, Engineering, Computer Science, or a related discipline.
Applicants with bachelor's degrees in non-STEM fields can begin study with a Certificate in Data Science that, in an additional term or year, gives the applicant a sample of the program. The courses in the certificate, upon successful completion with a grade of B- or better and admission to the M.S. in Data Science, may be transferred to apply to the M.S. in Data Science program.
