The University of Virginia School of Data Science—the first of its kind in the nation—is guided by common goals: to further discovery, share knowledge, and make a positive impact on society through collaborative, open, and responsible data science research and education. Founded in fall 2019 through the largest gift in UVA history, the school positions the university and our community to play national and international leadership roles in the global digital future.
The School of Data Science is a school for large scale, complex data analysis. It represents a unique confluence of computation, science, engineering, mathematics, statistics, commerce, social science, humanities, and law. The School of Data Science offers the M.S. in Data Science in two formats: an 11-month, full-time, residential experience in Charlottesville, Virginia, and an online program that spans five part-time semesters.
