Data scientists are in high demand, and therefore, pathways to learning data skills are more and more available. One way to get into a data science career is to earn a master’s degree—and while graduates regularly see six-figure salaries—the initial cost of school can be significant. That’s why Fortune has put together the top 15 most affordable in-person master’s degree programs in data science. For our methodology, we used the total tuition amounts programs provided us for our Best Master’s in Data Science Degrees in 2022 list. If schools did not provide a total tuition amount, we calculated total tuition by multiplying the minimum credits required to complete the program by the cost per credit amount. Costs per credit were either provided by schools or taken from the school’s program webpage.
