The 4-course certificate in urban data science (UDS) will provide students with the skills to apply data science techniques and methodologies to pressing problems in urban policy and administration, planning, and the emerging science of cities.
The UDS certificate is closely aligned with the M.A. in urban affairs and public policy in the Biden School, which treats the urban environment as the fundamental construct and prepares students to address critical societal issues across multiple spatial scales and disciplines. The UDS certificate enhances that approach as it conceptualizes cities as complex systems with three fundamental components—the human, natural, and built environments—whose interactions can be explored and understood through spatial and temporal quantitative and qualitative data.

Students enrolled in a graduate degree program who intend to pursue the Certificate Program should complete the Graduate Certificate Approval Form. The form must be signed by program director Greg Dobler and then sent to the Graduate College for processing.
Current UD undergraduate students can add the Certificate Program using the Graduate Certificate Enrollment Request Form for Current Undergraduate Students also available on the website of the Office of Graduate Studies. All courses must be taken at the 600-level rather than at the 400-level to count towards the Graduate Certificate.
Applicants who are not currently enrolled at UD are welcome to apply to the UDS certificate program. Required application materials:
