krikri911 Posted March 8, 2019 Share Posted March 8, 2019 (edited) Hi everyone, I'm planning on applying to Masters programs at the end of this year specifically ones that intersect in Data Science + Public Policy. I have a BS in Geographic Information Science so my main interest is in spatial analytics and recently its been mainly in urban informatics. My background isn't in computer science, my degree only required minor levels of Python, SQL, & stats so I'm currently taking some comp sci and higher level math courses while I work. I'm looking for any programs that would fulfill these requirements of Data Science + Public Policy (Spatial Analytics/Urban Informatics) I've seen this list https://www.mastersindatascience.org/specialties/best-data-analytics-degrees-for-public-policy/ but I'm searching for more lesser known programs bc my GPA isn't the greatest. I'm actively taking post-bacc courses to remedy this. However I still need safe programs. If you guys know of any please post them below. Some examples: University of Missouri (Mizzou) - Data Science (w geospatial concentration) UMBC - Spatial Analytics Pathway More reputable programs I *might* apply to: Northeastern - Urban Informatics NYU - Applied Urban Science & Informatics (CUSP) University of Chicago - Computational Social Science / Computational Analytics & Public Policy University of Pennsylvania - Urban Spatial Analytics Edited March 8, 2019 by krikri911 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
