Early Access to the Graduate Program in Data Science (M.S.)
In your third year as an actuarial science undergraduate, you can apply for the Accelerated Master’s option. This shortens the time you spend completing your degree and saves you money.
Qualified Data Science undergraduate students may take 12 credits hours at the graduate level that count toward both the undergraduate and the graduate degree. Students must have completed 100 undergraduate credit hours (at least 20 credit hours at Maryville) and have a grade points average of 3.6 to be eligible for early admission.
With an emphasis on experiential learning, the Master of Science in Data Science program incorporates experiential learning from current or previous professional positions as an integral part of the active learning curriculum for each graduate course and for the overall program objectives.
