 GRADUATE PROGRAMS

To help you see yourself working with data, we’ve created a way for you to assess what programs you could consider joining. There are a lot of data-focused graduate programs and not all are created equally.

Data Graduate Programs in the U.S. 

Data Graduate Programs in the U.S.

This map shows the number of institutions with data graduate programs in each state. Darker states have more institutions with data graduate programs. If you scroll over a state, you can see the number of institutions or schools with programs. If you click on a state you can see the list of schools with programs. However, because we relied on two different data sets that both have limited information, we can’t show enrollment numbers or institutional parity scores. If you want to learn more about a program, please visit the institution’s website.
