Graduate program-less writing intensive
#1
I'm finishing up my BS in Data Science and Analytics through TESU and have started looking at Masters programs. I know TESU also offers an MS degree in Data Science, but I want to fully explore my options. The main thing that's helped me finish the BS program is that all of the area of study courses are very assessment driven instead of writing intensive. That's what I need in a graduate program in order to be successful. Can anyone recommend specific degrees at specific schools that are set up this same way? Cost isn't too much of a factor if I can find the right program. Thanks!

I'm going to guess that WGU's MS in Data Analytics is less writing intensive, but I would call and check.

Are you open to asking this question on a different forum? The "sister forum" to this one is as strong regarding graduate schools as this form is about undergrad. It's just got a lot more people with that kind of knowledge. https://www.degreeinfo.com/index.php

But, don't be surprised if someone on the other forum insults you. They're pretty rude to newcomers who appear to be asking for easier programs.

it's possible. You can just search the archives and not post.

I concur. They seem to be rude to anyone that deviates from their ideals. That is one of the main reasons I haven't participated on that forum in many years.

This! There are a few especially who like to be...well you can use your imagination. Definitely not the ideal place to ask unless you are looking at a more difficult program as they tend to insult those who have different ideas for a program.

There seems to be the biggest d-bag on the entire planet on that forum, Steve Levicoff. Don't waste your time there. I went on there to see what it was about and what I just read was absolutely DISGUSTING.

They probably wouldn't be able to answer the question anyway. There are a few IT guys there who graduated college long before data science degrees were a thing, and that's about it among the STEM fields.

One recent question I thought they would be able to answer easily was which state universities accept NA credits. Instead, the thread devolved into an argument about the value of NA degrees and how people who get them are idiots. I did a few minutes of research and found CSU Global.

I do have a STEM educational background, but it's in the life sciences. From what I've experienced and seen, traditional, brick and mortar universities tend to require less writing. Non-traditional schools act like they have something to prove and put too much focus on number of pages and APA formatting.
