The Master of Science in Government Analytics program prepares students to become leaders in the data revolution. Students will develop expertise in analytical methods that are increasingly relied upon by government agencies, non-profit organizations, and the private sector. Through the use of cutting-edge tools and skills, students will be able to address contemporary political, policy, and governance challenges.
The Johns Hopkins MS in Government Analytics curriculum provides students with a broad set of foundational skills in statistical analysis and offers the opportunity to develop expertise in a specific analytical area. The program offers concentrations in statistical analysis, geospatial analysis, political behavior and policy analysis, and public management. No prior coursework in quantitative methods is necessary.
