Master’s in Data Science

Master’s in Data Science Overview

From cybersecurity to health and healthcare, from marketing analytics to risk analysis, computing and data science are pervasive. They are transforming discovery and innovation in our economy, our society, our culture, our habits—and how we best prepare students for the future.

Data science is an interdisciplinary field in which a host of mathematical and computational techniques are used to extract information from data, and subsequently used to make informed decisions. Career opportunities are vast and growing everyday in this exciting, applied field of study.

Lehigh's Master's of Science in Data Science allows students from a wide range of backgrounds to gain the qualifications necessary to tap into the wealth of data science jobs, many of which require an advanced degree. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects jobs in the field to grow more than 30 percent between 2020 and 2030. Lehigh's Data Science program provides access to the skills and tools of data science to people who want to develop that skill set, even if they don't have a background in computer science or statistics. Prospective students need a strong foundation in math and some basic training in computer science, but no prior data science coursework is required. Classes will be taught in a hybrid (both in-person and remote) format.
