New Online Master’s Degree Programs – December 2020

Several accredited, non-profit colleges and universities have recently announced the launch of new online master’s degree programs. Tufts University, Yale University, Sacred Heart University, Mercer University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison are among the schools that have introduced new online master’s program. These new programs include Master of Science (MS) programs in data science, health outcomes, and learning analytics, as well as Master of Public Health (MPH) and Master of Health Administration (MHA) programs.

Tufts University – Online Master of Science (MS) in Data Science Program

Tufts University and the Tufts School of Engineering in Medford, MA are launching a new online Master of Science (MS) in Data Science program in 2021. The program, which will be offered jointly through the university’s departments of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering, focuses on theoretical aspects of data science and the practical application of statistical modeling, machine learning, and data analytics techniques to solving real-world problems. Students in the program must complete a minimum of 30 graduate credits, which can be accomplished in one year of full-time enrollment by candidates who hold a bachelor’s degree in a STEM field. For students who do not have a bachelor’s degree in a STEM field and who are thus not eligible for the MS program, Tufts offers a Certificate in Data Science that can serve as steppingstone to further graduate studies, although it adds an addition semester or two to the total time required to earn the MS degree. The MS program is 100% online and does not require any campus visits.

Yale University – Online Executive Master of Public Health (MPH) Program

Yale University and the Yale School of Public Health in New Haven, CT have announced plans to offers an online Executive Master of Public Health (MPH) program that is accepting applications for a start date in 2021.

While most of the program’s courses are offered via online instruction, students are required to attend three campus-based intensives, each of which lasts for five days. In addition to a core public health curriculum, the program has four specialization options: Health Informatics; Environmental Health Sciences; Applied Analytical Methods; and Epidemiology. Students can choose to focus on one or two of the program’s specializations.
