Theories of Social Influence, Analytics for Competitive Advantage, Computational Modeling and Physiological Systems, and Methods of Reporting are examples of courses derived from the curriculum for an MSc, or the Master of Science. The University of Michigan, Northwestern University McCormick School of Engineering, Columbia University School of Engineering, and Columbia University School of Journalism offer the courses.
UM's Theories of Social Influence course fulfills a required management distribution for the Master of Science in Information, or MSI. It is a 48-credit program that takes approximately two years to complete full time. The Analytics for Competitive Advantage course at NU introduces candidates in the Master of Science in Analytics program to basic analytics concepts.
At Columbia University School of Engineering, candidates for the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering take Computational Modeling and Physiological Systems to develop a working knowledge of mathematical models, computational resources, and the means of using computer simulations to study complex biological systems.
Methods of Reporting, Digital Media Training, Critical Issues in Journalism, and Journalism, Law and Society are some of the required courses for students at Columbia University School of Journalism seeking a Master of Science in Journalism. Each student must also choose between a variety of essential courses, or Essentials in Journalism, which include business, ethics, history and law.
