Admissions Overview

As data science continues to evolve, our students are shaping current techniques, applications and methods used to improve the efficacy and growth of organizations across all industries. DataScience@Syracuse admissions hold the same high academic standards and expectations for online students as they do for on-campus students.

All applications are reviewed holistically, meaning our admissions team considers how each applicant’s experiences and objectives might contribute to improving the DataScience@Syracuse community. Prospective students should, however, have an interest in gaining foundational skills in statistics, computer programming and analytics, and be able to demonstrate their ability to meet the demands of a rigorous graduate program.
