Data science is the next frontier of information technology. Carleton’s new collaborative master’s in this area is geared toward graduate students and high-tech professionals who are interested in understanding how to analyze and use ‘big data’ sets collected by governments, industry, NGOs etc.
Students will earn their degree in one of six academic disciplines at Carleton with a specialization in Data Science or a concentration in Business Analytics for the MBA. Participants will pursue a thesis, coursework-only or project option that is directly related to Data Science, as per their original degree. Business students are also required to complete an internship. Depending on availability, students in other fields may also gain real-world experience through internships.
