About the School of Data Science
Under the leadership of President Brian O. Hemphill, Old Dominion University is pleased to announce plans for the creation of a new School of Data Science, featuring a unique collaboration with nearby Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Laboratory (or JLab, a Department of Energy national laboratory) and NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC). The planned School of Data Science will offer interdisciplinary academic programming for undergraduate, graduate, and non-degree students.
ODU's planned School of Data Science currently includes more than 150 faculty from a range of disciplines including but not limited to computer science, mathematics, statistics, engineering, psychology, criminal justice, education, business, information technology, history, and philosophy.
Why Data Science at ODU?
The purpose of the M.S. degree program in Data Science and Analytics is to provide students with the knowledge and skills to use state-of-the-art programming tools and software packages to develop statistical models. Students will learn to use data for identifying trends and patterns, solving problems, communicating results, and recommending optimal solutions. Students will acquire knowledge, skills, and abilities about the discipline-specific scientific and theoretical concepts critical to data science and analytics.
