The Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) in Data Science program requires 15 credit hours and prepares students to work with large amounts of data using information technologies as tools to gain knowledge and insight. The 2 Core Courses (6 credits) focus on handling data through its full lifecycle: architecting, acquiring, analyzing, and archiving data. The remaining elective credits enable specializations in data analytics, data storage and management or other areas such as data visualization.

The certificate can be completed as a full-time or part-time student. All candidates should have a bachelor's degree or equivalent. In addition, it is recommended that potential students have a strong background in science, statistics, research, and/or information technology. Applicants should have an interest in interdisciplinary work focused on managing big data using information technologies as tools. Prospective students who have an interest in data science, but lack the recommended undergraduate background, are encouraged to inquire. Individual consultations are available for such prospective students to explore their potential candidacy. We also offer our CAS in Data Science online. Learn more about iSchool@Syracuse Online.
