U Wisconsin To Launch Online Master's of Data Science - Joshua Bolkan, Campus Technology

The University of Wisconsin will launch an online master's degree in data science. Classes for the 12-course, 36-credit program will begin in September, pending approval from the Higher Learning Commission. The course is the result of a collaboration between the U Wisconsin Extension and six campuses and was designed with input from industry leaders to "offer a rigorous, multidisciplinary curriculum grounded in computer science, math and statistics, management and communication," according to a news release. David Schejbal, dean of UW-Extension's Division of Continuing Education, Outreach and E-Learning (CEOEL), in a prepared statement said "In Wisconsin and across the country, employers in most industries are in great need of skilled professionals with the ability to transform big data into actionable insights. We are excited to offer an online professional degree program aimed at creating tomorrow's data science leaders today."
