Curriculum

As you progress through the Katz School’s 30-credit MS in Data Analytics and Visualization program, you will develop a work-ready portfolio of projects and deepen your understanding of the core principles, patterns, and practices of data science and visualization. The MS can be completed in as quickly as 12 months, or part time at a pace that makes sense for you. To earn your degree, you must complete 21 credits of required foundational courses, including a capstone project, as well as nine credits of elective courses, which may include an internship.
