Data Science

Add a comprehensive and technically rigorous Data Science program to meet rapidly increasing student and employer demand

The demand for Data Science programs is skyrocketing with 64% more Data Science enrollments in the last year. Rize’s technically rigorous, hands-on Data Science program includes two foundational Data Analytics Core courses, project-based Python skill development, and a deep focus on predictive modeling and AI systems such as Large Language Models (LLMs).

Leverage over 3+ years of continuous course refinement, incorporating valuable feedback from instructors, students, curriculum committees, and extensive course testing.

Real-World Courses Taught by Qualified Professional & Academic Experts in the Data Science Field

Each Rize program has a dedicated curriculum committee comprised of faculty & industry experts in the program's subject area.

These experts understand the needs of hiring managers in related industries to ensure courses are current and professionally relevant.

Rize programs leverage the courses you already have:

Our Academic Partners will work directly with you to build a unique program leveraging and integrating courses you already have in your catalog.
A potential Data Science degree could look like this:
Example courses from your institution
Calculus I
Business Analytics
CS Programming Core (for colleges without a CS core, these courses are also available thru Rize)
Courses from Rize
Foundations of Data Analytics I
Foundations of Data Analytics II
Data Science I

Data Science course descriptions

You can launch this Data Science program by adding 6 Rize courses to your existing catalog, enabling you to market a Data Science degree to prospective students in as little as one semester. Expand below to read the course descriptions.

DAM I - Foundations of Data Analytics I

In an increasingly data-driven world, everyone should be able to understand the numbers that govern our lives. Whether or not you want to work as a data analyst, being “data literate” will help you in your chosen field. In this course, you’ll learn the core concepts of inference and data analysis by working with real data. By the end of the term, you’ll be able to analyze large datasets and present your results.

DAM II - Foundations of Data Analytics II

This course is intended as a continuation of Foundations of Data Analytics I. In this course, you’ll learn how Data Analytics are applied within the workforce. Particular attention will be paid to the role of the Data Scientist or Analyst, machine learning and the applications of Big Data. By the end of the term, you will be able to design and execute a range of data-driven experiments.

DSM I - Data Science I

This course is an introduction to data science in Python. Students will use advanced visualization and predictive modeling tools to turn raw data into actionable insights. Students will also learn how to use SQL to navigate databases.

DSM II - Data Science II

This course takes a deep dive into machine learning models, natural language processing, and time series in Python. Students will build machine learning models that solve a range of different business problems, using both structured and unstructured data. Students will learn to create actionable and ethical predictions by balancing accuracy, usability, and interpretability, and bias in model selection, design, training, and inference

DSM III - AI and Machine Learning

This course is a technical approach to cutting-edge AI methods. Students will productionize machine learning models to solve business problems, evaluate modern AI use cases (such as computer vision) and adapt Large Language Models (LLMs) for specific applications.

DSM IV - Practicum

This course is a capstone project in which students are asked to work through a full data science workflow using real-world data. This course exists to prepare students for the kind of work they will do on Data Science teams, and as such also features an emphasis on interviewing for jobs in the space and communicating results to stakeholders.

Students give these courses rave reviews

“The projects we had to do were very motivating… It sparked interest in me, got the light going in my brain - I loved doing the projects!”
Cole B.
Walsh University
“Rize has given me an opportunity to add something to my degree. Something that I wanted to find at my school but wasn’t there.”
Chisunta C.
Albertus Magnus College
“Class experience is amazing!”
Mary D.
Mary Baldwin University
“It’s helped me know what I want to do in my career because of how immersive the assignments are.”
Jacob J.
Lasell University
“Even though everything was online… it still felt like the same kind of small classroom that I really enjoy, and that’s why I chose my college - so I kinda got that same experience even thru the computer.”
Summer R.
Lasell University
"One of the things I liked about [it] was getting to meet new people from different colleges and getting to hear new experiences and opinions."
