Master in Interdisciplinary Data Science
Duke MIDS is a two-year program designed to help meet the need for knowledgeable data scientists who can answer important questions with data-backed insights.
All MIDS students complete a set of eight core courses that cover critical topics in statistics, machine learning, database management, data wrangling, data communication, analytical thinking, team management, and ethics. The core courses are designed to fit together as a cohesive set of learning experiences and ensure that students have repeated practice interpreting and reporting the results of analyses on real data sets.
Accompanying these core courses, students choose a set of approximately eight electives that deepen their expertise in a methodological or domain area.
Students culminate their experience with a capstone project that will be completed over the course of at least one year with mentoring from Duke’s world-class faculty.
