I am looking for domain-specific data science programs (as a major, not a minor or specialization). I found programs in bio-statistics (and other disciplines in public health), MS in marketing analytics, MS in learning analytics and MS in urban informatics. Does anyone know any other domain-specific data science field of study?

Unsurprisingly most programs in data science focus mostly on business or marketing applications. I too would like to see more programs focused on Biotechnology, Gaming or Energy for example but I think that in the future those kind of programs will become more and more available. However there are a few I know of that offer a somewhat different approach.

Regarding health informatics there are many offers where you can find anything between Public health to Computational Biology and Quantitative Genetics. Take a look at the full list.

On that list there are a few certification programs but there also are full fledged programs that lead to a M.Sc.

If you are more interested in Marketing Analytics you can find the same list but for marketing related programs.

other options like Information Systems are also present, just browse that site and you might find something that interests you.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you. I added Computational Biology and Quantitative Genetics to my list. Your post also reminded me of computational social science. $\endgroup$ – Hamideh Sep 27 '15 at 14:27

I found a PhD in Energy Informatics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and PhD in Learning Analytics at University of Technology Sydney
