MS in Data Science and Analytics Course Sequencing and Schedule

The MS in Data Science and Analytics program follows a curricular structure that is sequential. Much of the coursework in this program builds upon knowledge gained in previous courses in the sequence. Students are advised to enroll in required coursework following the below sequence.

Sequence Course Description Advisement
1 DSI-505 or DSI-506 Programming I None
2 DSI-507 or DSI-508 Programming II Programming I
3 DSI-530 Database Queries None
4 DSI-601 or DSI-604 Predictive Analytics I Programming I and II
5 DSI-602 or DSI-605 Predictive Analytics II Predictive Analytics I
6 DSI-603 or DSI-606 Predictive Analytics III Predictive Analytics II
7 DSI-622 Data Visualization None
8 DSI-700 Capstone All above courses

Some electives in this program are sequential and carry an advisory that students complete specific coursework prior to enrolling. Some electives in this program are specific to the track a student chooses (R or Python). The “core” refers to the required programming and predictive analytics courses in the above sequence.
