Mathematics and Computer Science Graduate Studies

Graduate Studies

A mathematics major can be well prepared to attend graduate school in a variety of areas. Appropriate planning with her advisor is important. Most students who pursue graduate studies also qualify for significant financial support in the form of assistantships.

Saint Mary's offers a primarily online Master of Science in Data Science program, open to both men and women.  Throughout the program you will learn to manipulate data rather than performing simple surface analysis, and as a result, dig beyond the level of a simple data analyst. According to Program Director Kristin Kuter, "Our graduates will be prepared to enter into the data analysis process at any stage, from the initial formulation of the question to visualizing data to interpreting the results and drawing conclusions. As a result, they'll be more versatile practitioners, whether it's for their own start-up, an employer, or a client."
