Graduate Overview

The world creates 2.5 quintillion bytes of data annually, and 90% of it has been produced in the last two years. This fundamentally changes the kinds of skills the professional world is demanding of its workforce, but it also presents a host of ethical concerns related to bias, social responsibility, and privacy. The effects of this data revolution are so nuanced and dynamic that they can only be addressed by critical thinkers who are rooted in data's foundations but capable of reimagining it's possibilities. Our answer: the new Master of Science in Quantitative Theory and Methods (QTM MS), a cutting-edge practicum that offers what other renowned data programs do not: a unique blend of technical training, rhetorical practice, and hands-on experience to mold the next generation of data-driven decision-makers.
