NYU Center for Data Science Graduate Programs

I am writing to announce that the Fall 2023 online application for our MS and PhD programs are now open. I would also like to take this opportunity to connect with you and your students. Our goal is to make the admissions process a little more intentional by engaging students in a way that might be more comfortable for them as they explore the possible next steps of their academic journeys. If any of your students are interested in pursuing our programs, please let me know. I’d be happy to meet with them one-on-one or as a group to address their questions.

We would be very grateful if you could spread the word among your strong graduating undergraduate and/or masters students. Please see below more detailed information about us with links to our upcoming virtual general information sessions:


Our PhD program is one of the first in Data Science. We have combined the reputation we have acquired through our highly successful MS program together with the world-class research of our faculty, to create a rigorous program of excellence that differs from a top CS or Math PhD program in terms of the interdisciplinarity it offers. Our PhD emphasizes a “translational” aspect that allows students to actively interact with scientific domains.  Those domains are brought to bear through our faculty (all joint with very strong NYU departments), our track with the medical school, and the excellent industry, research and government contacts we have established. We provide a generous fellowship. Application deadline is December 12, 2022.  Our virtual PhD Admissions Information Session will take place on Wednesday, October 12th from 10:00am to 11:00am ET. Please RSVP here. Applicants interested in the Medical School Track should also join us for the information session on October 14th. Info and RSVP here.

Our Master of Science in Data Science is a highly-selective program for students with a strong background in mathematics, computer science, and applied statistics. The degree focuses on the development of new methods for data science. Application deadline is January 22, 2023. Our virtual MSDS Admissions Information Session will take place on Wednesday, October 26th from 10:00am to 11:00am ET. Please RSVP here.
