UTA M.S. in Learning Analytics

Interactions in digital environments produce data. Learning analytics is the field of study that uses this data to understand what individuals have learned, how teams perform most effectively, and the networks that support social and organizational knowledge development. The University of Texas at Arlington's Master of Science in Learning Analytics (MSLA) is the world's first fully online program intended for individuals who want to pursue a career in fields that are impacted by the digitization of learning, sensemaking, and knowledge processes in complex information environments.

The 36-credit hour program offers two pathways, with one requiring a traditional research thesis and the other requiring a capstone project. Additionally, students following both paths will complete six core courses and electives that suit their needs and contexts.
Why Learning Analytics?

Learning analytics is a rapidly growing area of research and practice that uses data science to make sense of the world and to improve teaching, learning, and knowledge processes in a variety of contexts, such as informal settings, schools, universities, corporations, and non-profit organizations. It sits at the nexus of learning science, education, computer science, and psychology and uses a range of analytics approaches.
