DATA 750 - DATA SCIENCE THESIS
All M.S. students will be required to complete a Master’s Thesis under the advisement of a faculty member. This requirement is distinct from any Fieldwork Experiences the students participate in - however, students participating in Fieldwork Experiences for more than one semester may have their thesis requirement waived. Thesis projects represent independent research, developed and implemented by the student. Thesis projects require a written thesis to be submitted to the faculty advisor, along with a panel of Data Science faculty. The project also requires an oral presentation, made to the faculty advisor and panel. Grading is P/F for this course. Enrollment requires students meet with the Data Science Graduate Program Director, obtain approval of a project idea, and select a faculty advisor prior to registration. Registration for Spring semester requires project approval and advisor selection prior to the end of October, registration for Fall semester requires project approval and advisor selection prior to the end of April.
