Will a Master’s Degree make you more employable?_
My toilet is acting up. Do I call someone with a PhD in Fluid Dynamics to learn how the physics messed up my pipes, or do I call a plumber to come and fix it? In the tech world, knowledge on theory doesn’t get you anywhere. In a graduate Data Science program, you’ll spend a fortune learning a whole lot of theory about statistics, then algorithms, then applied machine learning, and then apply none of it and have nothing to show employers but a piece of paper. Not here.
Graduate degrees are set up in a way where you learn about pipe theory, then the history of the wrench, then the physics of water. Our curriculum is set up to let you practice how to actually fix things so you can be the best plumber out there. Not a plumber though, a data scientist.

Interested? We thought so_
Lots of job listings for data scientists require a degree, but the good news is that lots 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 PhDs that can’t prove they actually know what they’re doing. Employers can’t waste their time training candidates that have knowledge but not skill.
In fact, we have students every year that finished their degrees but couldn’t get hired.

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 Placement Manager, Stephen, gave him the shirt off his back. That’s how dedicated we are to each and every student’s long term success.
(P.S. He got the job!)
We offer financial aid, too_Worried about the $27,500 price tag? Don’t be. It’s way cheaper than a Master’s degree and we’ll help you out with scholarships, loans, and payment plans. You might even be able to use yours or your parent’s GI Bill. With one of our loan options, you won’t have to start paying until 3 months after graduating our program. And by then, you’ll hopefully already have a data science job with an awesome salary. Master’s degrees are insanely expensive, and there’s no refund if you don’t get a job. Have peace of mind by taking the Codeup route. The only thing you risk is your time.
