MS in Urban Informatics
The proliferation of spatial analysis, data mining, modeling, and visualization in virtually all parts of policy analysis and decision making calls for a new generation of experts who can navigate the technical and socioeconomic landscape on which life in the city unfolds.
Only a handful of U.S. universities currently offer degrees in Urban Informatics, a pioneering field in its early stages. Northeastern’s interdisciplinary curriculum, leading faculty, experiential opportunities, and its prime location at the heart of Boston set the university apart from other institutions. Our students find themselves in very diverse classes with peers from other programs and from around the world. Together, they develop a broad knowledge base and rich network while collectively working on projects and gaining valuable real-world problem solving skills.
Given the continuous growth in urban data and technology, our students are essential to shaping the future of cities around the globe.
