MS in Data Science

Take your analytical skills to the next level, and generate insights that benefit organizations and enhance our understanding of the world.

Data science has emerged as an invaluable tool for scientists, scholars and decision makers in virtually every field. They’re tracking trends in real time, analyzing the impact of policy decisions, and helping businesses and nonprofits respond to the needs of the people they serve.

Our one-year master’s program will equip you with the advanced technical skills, in-depth knowledge and ethically informed perspective you need to excel as a data scientist. And you’ll work closely with some of the nation’s top educators every step of the way.

You’ll gain experience in multiple data science environments and applications, and you can delve into specific areas like data privacy, visualization, marketing analytics and finance. You’ll also add to your professional portfolio by planning and executing a data science project on campus or as part of an internship off campus.

Our connections with the Oregon State Capitol and Salem Health — not to mention an alumni network that spans companies like Intel, Google and Disney — will open the door to powerful learning experiences and potential job opportunities. You’ll create knowledge, inform decision makers and emerge as a valuable asset wherever your career path leads.
