Online Master's in Data Analytics and Data Science Programs in Washington, DC

There are currently two schools offering online master’s in analytics program in Washington, DC: American University, and Johns Hopkins University. Both of these programs meet OnlineEducation.com’s criteria for online master’s in data analytics programs. The American University program includes two immersion sessions at the school’s DC campus that students are required to attend. The Johns Hopkins University program is 100% online and does not require any campus visits.

The Kogod School of Business offers a Master of Science in Analytics (Analytics@American) program that gives students the choice of four areas of concentration: Business Foundations, Cybersecurity, Financial Analytics, and Marketing Analytics. The core Analytics@American curriculum focuses on the organizational applications of descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics tools and technologies. In addition to the ten online courses students must complete, the program includes an applied analytics capstone project that takes place during the two on-campus immersion sessions, which last three or four days, and give students the opportunity to meet and interact with faculty and data analytics professionals.

The Analytics@American program utilizes synchronous instruction, which means that lectures and class discussions are streamed live in real time. Students who are enrolled full-time can expect to complete the program in nine months; students who opt for part-time enrollment typically finish in 12-15 months. Analytics@American has four annual start dates, in October, January, April, and July.

The Advanced Academics Programs at Johns Hopkins University, in conjunction with the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts & Sciences, offers an online Master of Science in Government Analytics program with four areas of specialization: Statistical Analysis; Geospatial Analysis; Political Behavior and Policy Analysis; and Public Management. The curriculum includes coursework in statistical modeling, decision-making analytics, and data in public policy, as well an applied analytics capstone project. (The Advanced Academics Programs at Johns Hopkins University are based out of the Washington, DC Center campus location.)

The MS in Government Analytics program at Johns Hopkins University utilizes asynchronous instruction, which gives students on-demand access to videotapes lectures and other course materials. Some courses may include an occasional real-time online lecture or discussion, at the discretion of the instructor. The program is designed to accommodate students who may already be working in the field of analytics. It can be completed in two years of part-time enrollment. Applicants with two-to-five years of professional experience are preferred, but prior work experience is not a requirement. The program has three annual start dates, in the fall, spring, and summer.
