Course content

We are surrounded by data. The variety and amount we collect and store grows every day, from the simplest of retail transactions to the complex and intimate medical records of millions.

Why do we store data? Where do we store it? How do we retrieve it? What do we use it for?

There is an increasing demand for individuals who can manage and control the way data is used. These individuals require an understanding of computer science and mathematics as well as a range of sector specific skills which can be applied in a variety of business environments.

The Data Science and Analytics MSc is a highly flexible course which offers the opportunity to develop a range of skills, including analysing structured and unstructured data, analysing large datasets and critically evaluating results in context, through a combination of compulsory and optional modules. By choosing appropriate modules you can follow specific pathways, in business management, healthcare or geographic information systems (GIS), which will allow you to tailor the programme to suit your background and needs.

The course combines expertise from the Schools of Computing, Geography and Mathematics with that of Leeds University Business School and the Yorkshire Centre for Health Informatics. This collaboration allows you to benefit from a range of data science perspectives and applications, supporting you to tailor your learning to your career ambitions.
