Great for those who have a technical background. Otherwise, I would recommend the UPenn MCIT.

That does look pretty interesting, and hard to beat for the price.

That might be another option for me to consider along with the GA Tech OMSCS if I don't elect to move forward with a Ph.D. I'm more interested in the machine learning side of data science, but it is still interesting to me.

For data science, do you need to know how to write coding c or Java or phyton?

Python is very easy to learn on your own even if you have no experience.

FreeCodeCamp starts you with HTML, CSS, and JS, then you learn Python for data science. https://www.freecodecamp.org/learn/

Zenva Academy is good; they have focused videos & projects on specific topics, including the otherwise sometimes expensive to find data science and machine learning ones. They're not free but they're less than $200 for a year right now if you pay for the whole year in advance. https://academy.zenva.com/product-catego...a-science/

DataCamp costs $25/mo. https://www.datacamp.com/pricing They're okay but I don't know that they're worth that much.

Mimo is like Duolingo for programming. It's not the best resource, IMO, but they do have Python & data science and they're only $80/year. https://getmimo.com/

Pick one to follow and go!
