Data Science Master's Degree and Summer Opportunities

Spelman Launches Data Science Master's Degree Program With MSU

Spelman Launches Data Science Masters Degree Partnership with MSC

What is Data Science?

Data science is the practice of building models based on DATA to understand the world around us.

Why is Data Science Important? 

Data science can be found in most disciplines and is used to make critical decisions in science and in industry.

Why are the voices and input of Spelman Women Like You Needed?

Fewer than 3% of data scientists are women of color. Data scientists often make decisions that are based on their experiences and perspectives. This can sometimes lead to inequities in how data are interpreted and used.  Having diverse perspectives is critical to ensure that these inequities are minimized.

Why Was the Spelman/Michigan State University Partnership Was Created?

The Spelman College/MSU partnership is generously funded by the NSF Harnessing the Data Science Revolution (HDR) program and the Sloan Foundation. 

This partnership was developed to offer Spelman STEM majors an opportunity to gain skills and advanced training in data science.
