The data science graduate certificate is a collaborative program among business analytics, computer science, and information systems. This certificate program prepares students to apply both data management and analytic techniques (including statistical and data/text mining approaches) to extract meaningful insights from both structured and unstructured data. Students acquire hands-on experience with relevant analytics and data management tools, programming languages, data models, and IT architectures for data integration, analysis and visualization. A Graduate Certificate in Data Science can give you the credentials you need to upgrade your skill set or explore a new field. And you don’t have to have a background in computer science or statistics to get started. The Graduate Certificate in Data Science is appropriate for students who are seeking a master’s degree in a different discipline or for working professionals as an alternative to a full master’s program. Applicants must have earned a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution (or the international equivalent) with at least three semester credit hours of statistics and at least six semester credit hours of computer programming coursework in a high-level programming language.
