The M.S. in Data Science allows students to apply data science techniques to their field of interest.

Ours is one of the most highly-rated and sought-after advanced data science programs in the world.

Program Highlights

Columbia data science students have the opportunity to conduct original research, produce a capstone project, and interact with our industry partners and world-class faculty.

This program is jointly offered in collaboration with the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Statistics, and The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science’s Department of Computer Science and Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research.

Some students are primarily concerned about data ethics, others are excited about data science as a new evolution in knowledge, but all are interested in how data science is changing our everyday lives.
