4+1 Master of Science in Data Science (MSDS)
Ramapo College offers students the ability to begin their Master’s of Data Science (MSDS) program while still an undergraduate. This accelerates their graduate program and allows them to complete their MSDS in one additional year beyond their 4-year Bachelor’s degree. This five year program is designed for students enrolled in Bioinformatics, Computer Science, Data Science, and Mathematics majors.
Freshmen, Sophomore, and Juniors can submit this form to add the MS in Data Science to their major. You can submit this form to the Registrar, or Dr. Scott Frees (G315)
B.S. Bioinformatics and M.S. Data Science
Bioinformatics students must take MATH 262 (Linear Algebra) during their junior year. In their senior year, they may take CMPS 530 as one of their Group1 electives, and then complete DATA 601 and DATA 620 in their general elective slots.

Enrollment in 4+1 Programs
Students interested in enrolling in the MSDS program in the 4+1 track should complete the registration form and send to the MSDS Program Director, Dr. Scott Frees (firstname.lastname@example.org). Students completing majors in other disciplines may also contact the Program Director for assistance in designing a 5-year plan for their specific situation.
