M.S. and Ph.D. in Computational Sciences

Our computational sciences program is designed to equip graduates with a distinctive blend of theoretical and computational skills, for employment in industry, research laboratories and institutions of higher education. A distinctive feature of our program is that all core aspects of a student’s program of study, constituting in general the first two years of study, are undertaken within our one interdisciplinary department. While the bulk of their coursework will be undertaken in this department, their research topics may range across the computational aspects of a broad spectrum of disciplines.

M.S. in Applied Statistics

The M.S. in Applied Statistics program is focused on producing graduates who can deal with big data, perform statistical analysis to detect hidden patterns in data, perform risk factor analysis and perform predictive analysis. The program is intended for students who have a mathematical background (not necessarily having a degree in mathematics or statistics) that want to develop strong data analytic skills to solve complex, real world problems. In addition to coursework, students also take a statistical consulting practicum course. The practicum is intended to give students practical, hands-on statistical consulting training.

M.S. in Bioinformatics

A joint program between Marquette University and The Medical College of Wisconsin, the bioinformatics specialization is geared toward creating computing applications for the biological science. More details found here.


M.S. in Computing

The computing program is a professional master's degree that spans the study of computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, information technology and information systems. It is designed to enhance the computing skill set of current practitioners as well as students interested in moving into the computing field. Online course offerings via distance learning enhance the program flexibility for busy professionals and enable students outside the metro area to earn their MS degree. While students in the Computing program need not choose a specialization, we offer two professional specializations that respond to strong needs for workforce development.
