Master of Science in Data Analytics and Computational Social Science
The master of science degree in data analytics and computational social science (DACSS) is an interdisciplinary degree program designed to train students to fill roles that require cutting-edge data analysis and computational social science training and/or involve regular interaction with trained computer scientists and other data science professionals. Students can follow a one-year fast-track plan with the last three months (mid-May through mid-August) compatible with full-time work, or choose a moderately paced 18- to 24-month path. Possible career trajectories include analyst and consulting positions in public policy, market research, public relations, corporate communications, population studies, and survey research. Students will also be well prepared to pursue a PhD or other advanced graduate studies.
