Welcome to our comprehensive directory of Master’s in Data Science programs, from universities across the US. If you’re on this page you must be pretty serious about earning a master’s degree in data science. We want to help kick-start your search for a great graduate program, so we’ve worked hard to develop a list of more than 20 top-notch schools across the US, as well as a state-by-state directory (and even a list of data science programs outside the US). We combined information from several sources, including good old Google, to help us locate these programs, and then we visited each school’s site independently to gather additional data and make sure the program met our qualifications.

In our annotated list of top schools (which you can find here), we have information about each program’s:
- Location and length
- Full-time, part-time and online options
- Concentrations and/or majors
- Courses, internships and real-world opportunities
For our comprehensive directory, recognizing that data science is an emerging, interdisciplinary field, we’ve tried to include as many programs as we could find in its component disciplines (like Computer Science and Statistics) that have an interdisciplinary focus and prepare their students to deal with the new challenges involved in understanding data – even if they’re not explicitly called “Data Science” programs.

We’re going to be adding programs to this directory regularly. We encourage you to contact us at info (at) mastersindatascience.org if you have any additional programs to suggest, or if you think one of the programs we currently include should be removed.
We’re excited to make this the best directory on the Web of Master’s programs in the data science field!
