Master of Science in Data Science
The Rawls College of Business offers a one-year intensive Master of Science degree with a focus on Data Science. This is a STEM-designated program that combines statistics, technology and business education. Students will learn how to use advanced technologies to manipulate big data, how to use rigorous statistical methods to understand the data, and the business skills necessary to translate their understanding into actionable organizational strategies. The one-year plan will consist of 12 courses, each of which will be offered in an accelerated seven-week format. The courses cover statistics, technology, and business, as well as courses integrating the three areas. Graduates can expect to find employment in data science, business analytics, business intelligence, and big data fields, which are some of the most rapidly growing areas in business. With Texas Tech’s low tuition rates, and a one-year time to completion, this program offers an excellent return on investment for students.
