Master of Science - Data Science
|Core Course Requirements||18|
Degree Specific Credits:
Thesis: 30 credits
Nonthesis: 36 credits
Required Cumulative GPA: 3.0
- At least half of the credits required for a degree (excluding a combined total of 10 credits for thesis or research) will be at the 500 or 600 level. (In no case, however, will this rule require more than 18 credits of 500- or 600-level work.) To apply this rule to the course of study, subtract the number of thesis and research credits completed (up to 10 only) from the minimum number of credits required for the degree.
- Half of the remaining credits must be in courses at the 500 or 600 level.
- The student and the student's advisor design a program of studies for each student. Each year the student must complete (or update) an advisor-approved Program of Studies form which is to be kept on file in the Mathematics office. A revised form must be filed if there are any changes to the student's program during the year.
- After the first year students will take a comprehensive exam on material from M 540, M 561, and M 562. It is structured in two parts, written and preliminary.
