Big data. Bigger ideas.

The digitization of information—social networks, business transactions, healthcare records and more—has transformed the world, necessitating a demand for people who understand all of the big data being collected and who can take action to help individuals, corporations and organizations become smarter, faster and ultimately more effective.

Through Drew’s Master of Science and graduate certificate programs in Data Analytics, you will:

  • Learn how to obtain, prepare and manage data from a wide variety of sources.
  • Gain mastery of data analytical techniques.
  • Leave with a portfolio of projects and work experience from experiential learning projects and internships.

"Drew’s Data Analytics programs are structured to focus on the intersections of statistics, computer science, skills, and technologies."

Sarah Abramowitz, Professor and Department Chair, Mathematics and Computer Science


Both our 12-credit certificate programs and our 30-36 credit Master of Science degree will prepare you to become an advanced analyst who can create and develop data sets and analytic protocols, communicate your analytic findings to leaders and general audiences and ultimately participate in data-informed decision making.


With the digital transformation of academia and the workforce, it is not surprising that data science and data analytics jobs are projected to grow at some of the fastest rates in the near future.*
