The program requires the successful completion of 4.00 graduate credits consisting of: six core courses (6 x 0.50 = 3.00) or four core courses (4 x 0.50 = 2.00) and a major research project (1.00); and two elective courses (2 x 0.50 = 1.00).

*Students may elect to complete DATA*6700 Data Science Project, which could take the form of a faculty-supervised research project or work internship, in place of the two capstone courses. This option will depend on approval of the course instructor and on the availability of a faculty member who is willing to supervise the major research project. It is expected that most students will take the pass by course option.
