    The University of Illinois has partnered with Coursera to launch the first MOOC-based Master's Degree in Data Science.
    The program is offered in partnership with the Graduate School of Library and Information Science and the Department of Statistics. Students receive lectures through Coursera’s massive open online course (MOOC) platform. MCS-DS students are assessed by Illinois faculty and teaching assistants on their assignments, projects, and exams. Registered students receive university course credits and transcripts.

    Who may apply? Applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree. If it is not in computer science, applicants must have sufficient background in computer programming as well as data structures and algorithms. The recommended undergraduate GPA for applicants applying to the Professional Master's program is a 3.2/4.0 or higher.

    Fall 2016 Application Deadline: June 15, 2016
    Tuition for the MCS-DS program is $600 per credit hour, for a total of $19,200 for the complete 32 hour degree.

    Financial Assistance
    The Department of Computer Science does not offer research or teaching assistantships to students enrolled in our online programs, including the MCS-DS.
