4+1 Bachelors with MS in Data Science


Program Requirements:


The interdisciplinary Master of Science in Data Science (MSDS) offers combined 4+1 Bachelors and MSDS programs that allow students to complete both the Bachelor’s degree from a variety of departments and the MSDS in a total of five years of full-time study. The undergraduate degree options include those from the Departments of Mathematical Sciences and of Physics and Astronomy in the College of Arts and Sciences; and the Departments of Computer and Information Sciences, of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and of Mechanical Engineering in the College of Engineering.  All requirements of both degree programs must be satisfied. Up to six credits of graduate coursework in the department of the undergraduate major may be applied toward satisfying the requirements of both degrees. 


Students applying to a 4+1 Bachelor/MSDS program must be in their junior year of study at the University of Delaware, enrolled in a Bachelor degree program administered by one of the departments listed above, must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2, a GPA of at least 3.4 in their major, and must have completed at least two courses at or above the 400 level in the undergraduate major. The application process requires two letters of recommendation, which must be written by University of Delaware faculty, and academic transcripts.  The application to this option is reviewed by the executive committee of the MSDS program.  

Complete information on requirements, admissions policies and current events for the MSDS program can be found on its website at www.msds.udel.edu.
