Informatics, MASTER OF SCIENCE
Informaticists apply interdisciplinary scientific and technological skill sets to analyze and develop solutions for problems central to contemporary science. An MS in Informatics prepares you to enter the informatics workforce or continue on to a doctoral program of study.
Individual and team-based assignments build mastery of informatics skills and practical applications in areas such as population health, bioinformatics, remote sensing, ecological modeling, wearable computing, and machine learning and data science.
With the non-thesis option, you can complete your degree through coursework and project-based learning. If you choose the thesis option, you’ll conduct research projects under the mentorship of a faculty member and prepare and defend a thesis.
The program includes broad collaborations and partnerships with the Pathogen and Microbiome Institute, Center for Ecosystem Science and Society, Merriam-Powell Center for Environmental Research, Department of Biological Sciences, Department of Applied Physics and Materials Science, School of Earth and Sustainability, and School of Forestry. Regional research collaborators include the Translational Genomics Research Institute, Northern Arizona Healthcare and Flagstaff Medical Center, North Country HealthCare, US Geological Survey, and Northern Arizona Planetary Science Alliance.
