The new online Master of Science in Data Science (MSDS) from the University of Virginia School of Data Science expands the accessibility of our cutting-edge curriculum beyond Charlottesville. The application of data science across nearly every industry is one of the most important undertakings of the 21st century. We are thrilled to welcome a new group of diverse students from across the region, country, and globe.

Data Science is a team sport.

Data science is not a siloed endeavor; we know that the most meaningful insights are found when we work together and collaborate on methods of analysis and discovery.

Data is everywhere.

From healthcare to government to business, data has never been so widely accessible or relied-upon to help people do their best work.

It’s not just about numbers.

The most meaningful applications of data science transpire when we look beyond stats and figures to see the big picture. Data tells a story - and our students know how to see it and share it by asking the right questions and understanding how to find the best solutions.
