Help us build a new kind of school.

“We believe the work of all our contributors—staff, researchers, faculty, students, alumni, partners, and community members—are what make us an innovative, agile, and great place to work.” — Phil Bourne, Dean, School of Data Science

As the University of Virginia’s first and only independent, degree-granting institute, the School of Data Science (SDS) was founded in 2019 as a school without walls. Data science has applications in every sector—from healthcare to government to business—and we are committed to providing a unique and interdisciplinary perspective with data science at its core. SDS offers a variety of degree programs and certificates for every level of interest, with an underlying focus on transparency, ethical use of data, social responsibility, and real-life application.
