Program Information

Is the Data Science Master's a STEM program?

Yes, this is considered a STEM program for OPT extension purposes (this is a visa issue, of concern to international applicants). 

I am a Brown undergraduate; can I do this program as a concurrent degree?

No. You can apply for the 5th-Year Master's Degree, but this program is not suitable for concurrent degrees. 

Is there an online option for this program? 

Application and Eligibility Questions

Is there a minimum GPA and GRE score required to apply?

Brown University requires a minimum 3.0 on a 4-point scale for admission (with exceptions for unusual circumstances). There is no minimum GRE score requirement, but most accepted students have a quantitive score of 165 - 170, and analytical writing score of 4 or over.

Can I submit my Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) scores instead of the GRE scores?
