In response to COVID-19, the University of St. Thomas has made prudent decisions to act on the advice of state and medical professionals. For fall 2020, all our classes in our Graduate Programs in Software and Data Science which are normally delivered in an on-campus classroom format, will be delivered live online. The classes will still be held during their normal time on weeknights and Saturdays. 

We are happy to help you in every way possible on your journey to apply, register, and start classes. Each of our classes meet once a week or every other Saturday.
