In a crisis, information is a critical resource. It’s what drives the response—analyzing scope, identifying resources, and deploying responders. Informatics informs the planning and preparedness needed to reduce the impact of a flood, tornado, or other disaster.
To anticipate, mitigate, and manage a crisis, you need data. With the right skills, you can use that data to provide useful information and potentially life-saving knowledge.
Our trailblazing program is the first to offer a Master of Science in Applied Data Science with a specialization in Crisis Informatics. You’ll learn methods of data mining, how to transform large data sets into usable knowledge, and ways to represent information visually.
