Applicants who have already completed a master’s degree in Data Science or a very closely related field, such as Applied Statistics, are eligible to apply for the Post-Master’s Certificate in Data Science. Coursework should have included coursework comparable to at least three of the four required courses in both the Computer Science area and the Applied and Computational Mathematics area, respectively.
Exceptions to these requirements, based on experience, can be made by the program chairs.
Five courses must be completed within three years. At least two courses must be from the Applied and Computational Mathematics program (EN.625.xxx), and at least two courses must be from the Computer Science program (EN.605.xxx). At least three of the courses must be 700-level with at least one from Computer Science and at least one from Applied and Computational Mathematics. Only grades of B– or above can be counted toward the post-master’s certificate. EN.625.603 Statistical Methods and Data Analysis may not be applied to the post-master’s certificate. One graduate course taken outside of JHU and not applied toward a graduate or other degree may be considered toward the Data Science Post-Master’s Certificate, subject to advisor approval. All course selections are subject to advisor approval.
