From NYU:

The 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.

We live in the “Age of the Petabyte,” soon to become “The Age of the Exabyte.” Our networked world is generating a deluge of data that no human, or group of humans, can process fast enough. This data deluge has the potential to transform the way business, government, science, and healthcare are carried out. But too few possess the skills needed to use automated analytical tools and cut through the noise to create knowledge from big data.

A new discipline has emerged to address the need for professionals and researchers to deal with the “data tidal wave.” Its object is to transform the way business, government, science, and healthcare are carried out. But too few possess the skills needed to use automated analytical tools and cut through the noise to create knowledge from big data.

A new discipline has emerged to address the need for professionals and researchers to deal with the “data tidal wave.” Its object is to provide the underlying theory and methods of the data revolution. This emergent discipline is known by several names. We call it “data science,” and we have created the world’s first MS degree program devoted to it.”

Recommended Prerequisites: Having completed courses in: Calculus I, Linear Algebra, Intro to Computer Science, and "one of Calculus II, Probability, Statistics, or an advanced physics, engineering, or econometrics course with heavy mathematical content." GRE scores, TOEFL or IELTS (though TOEFL is preferred) "required for all applicants whose native language is not English and who have not received a university degree in an English-speaking country."
