Graduate students will have two new degree programs to choose from this fall—a Master of Science in Data Science and a Master of Arts in European Studies.

Offered through the University’s new Data Science Institute, that degree program’s objective is to integrate data for use across a broad array of disciplines, including education, engineering, the humanities, medicine, the social sciences, and the physical and life sciences—anywhere the collection, analysis and interpretation of vast amounts of data are critical to understanding large, complex systems. The program also will emphasize ethics, law and policy.

The European Studies program will bring together disciplines including language, history and politics to gain a broad understanding of Europe and its place in the world. “[The] program is not limited to those who seek employment in academia; it will also aim to provide professional credentials to students with career interests in business, government, non-governmental and international organizations, policy-oriented research institutes, journalism, museums and other institutions in the United States and Europe,” according to Meredith Woo, dean of the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences.
