The Masters of Science in Data Science and Analytics (DSA) is a new online degree program developed cooperatively by Clemson’s College of Business and College of Science. The program requires 30 credit hours, 15 hours from the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences and 15 hours from the Department of Management. This unique degree program is entirely online, targets current working professionals, and produces data analysts with course work in decision sciences and management.
