This 36-semester hour program prepares the student by providing depth in analytics during the first year and focused functional study during the second year that can be applied to any discipline or any interdisciplinary area. Data analysts are forging new relationships in virtually every discipline: business, healthcare, geology, mathematics and statistics, biology, chemistry, computer science, information systems and technology, engineering, psychology, behavioral science, operations research, and more, in addition to potential interactions between these disciplines, using role-based interaction with information and analytics to enable highly collaborative, data-driven organizations. The graduate of this program enters the workforce prepared for the complex, information-intensive world. The Master of Science in Analytics has three concentrations: Healthcare Informatics, Pharmaceutical Sciences, and Individualized. Please see the Pharmaceutical Sciences concentration for additional admission requirements.

The Promise of Panama
Standing as a gateway between North and South America, Panama is uniquely situated to bring economic and educational opportunities to the greater Latin American region. The regional population has demonstrated a strong interest in learning valuable skills and gaining knowledge that will lift them to a higher career path with a brighter future. With higher education, not only the individual but also the entire community becomes more prosperous.
For this reason, Harrisburg University of Science and Technology has been in negotiations with the City of Knowledge, Panama, to bring a campus to their location, a site already known as a center of education, research, and development. Taught by HU professors from the U.S., the new Panama campus will initially offer a Master of Science in Analytics degree, which will be delivered in a hybrid of online and on-campus classes in Panama. The campus will also offer a range of professional development opportunities to benefit the local communities. With the opening of Harrisburg University’s Panama campus, students can advance their education without leaving Latin America.
