Will a Master’s Degree make you more employable?
If your toilet is acting up, you call a plumber, not someone with a PhD in Fluid Dynamics to learn how the physics messed up your pipes. Graduate degrees are set up to where you learn about pipe theory, then the history of the wrench, then the physics of water. But in the tech world, knowledge on theory won’t get you very far.
In grad school, you’ll spend a fortune learning theory about statistics, then algorithms, then the history and evolution of applied machine learning. However, you won’t have many tangible skills or projects to show potential employers. Not here. Our hands-on, project-based curriculum is crafted by employers and set up to let you practice how to actually fix things so you can be the best data scientist you can be.

Employers Care About
DO I NEED ANY DEGREE?
Though some job listings for data scientists require a Bachelor’s degree, many of them don’t, and those that do often don’t care what your degree is in. As long as there’s evidence that you have the right skills, you’re employable. And building skills is what we’re all about.
You’ll have plenty of projects to show off to potential employers which will put you way ahead of the game. Employers can’t waste their time training candidates that have knowledge but not skill. That’s why we’re here!
In fact, we have students come to Codeup every year because they finished their degrees but couldn’t get hired. Some even have a Master’s degree and above. Others get just as great of jobs with no degree.

They’ll give you the shirt off their back | Lance
Lance previously served in the Marine Corps. He was ready for a career change. Toward the end of his time at Codeup, he got an impromptu opportunity to interview with a company but was dressed for class, not an interview. So our Director of Business Development, Stephen, gave him the shirt off his back. That’s how dedicated we are to each and every student’s long term success.
