Students may complete any on of the options linked to below, and must notify the Program Director and Graduate Admissions of their plans.
Linear Algebra Coursework Options
Please note that many courses in engineering, science, and technical disciplines often cover the linear algebra topics required for the MSDS program. Please consult with the Program Director to determine if you have satisfied this prerequisite.
In addition to the options above, completion of coursework at institutions not listed (2 or 4 year institutions) may also be considered. Students wishing to complete coursework at other institutions may submit course syllabi to the Program Director for review. Students should also note that while DATA 503 does not have prerequisites, MATH 262 does require prerequisites and students must consult with the Program Director to determine eligibility.
