Mathematics B.S. + Applied Data Science M.S.
Combine the fundamental with the cutting edge when you graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Master of Science in Applied Data Science from IUPUI.
Mathematics fuels solutions in economics, science, engineering, physics, and business, relying on mathematical theory, computational techniques, algorithms, and the latest computer technology.
Data science and applied statistics make a mathematics degree even more marketable. Graduate with the skills to intelligently design methods of collecting and interpreting big data. Draw upon your analytical skills to become a leader in planning, strategy, or research across a breadth of industries.
Earning two degrees through the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing’s accelerated degree program saves you time and money.
In just five years, you’ll graduate with:
