5 PhD Programs in Data Science 2023


The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

Data science, or data-driven science, involves the multi-faceted study of scientific methods, processes, and systems in the search for additional insights. An example of this is data mining. Students in this area of study might focus on organizational changes in corporations or how to improve the decision-making process.
