Data Science program structure

Degrees in data science are relatively new, so the framework and curriculum for each program will differ from university to university. As a rule, data science combines elements of computer science, statistics and maths.

It is possible to study data science at undergraduate level, and is offered as a BSc which can be studied over three or four years, depending on the country. Postgraduate data science degrees are more common, with master’s degrees available in many countries around the world.

Many students choose to study a related bachelor’s degree, for example computer science or mathematics, and then study a master’s in data science over one or two years. It is also possible to study data science at the doctorate level, which can last up to five you to complete.

Some of the subject areas and modules you could study include:

  • Programming
  • Mathematics
  • Statistics
  • Software engineering
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Machine learning
  • Algorithms
  • Systems architecture
  • Big data
