Professionally..no.
Unless you have your special connections and can show you have the acceptional practice, you could get lucky.
Data Scientists play a big role for Big Data IT industries. So the chance of hiring someone without a degree related to such a job is low.

Will getting masters in data science help?

Pavel Ten Depends on how much time and/or money you can invest towards this topic of education. A higher awarded degree is great, but a technical degree will suffice.
A quick linkedin search for people in data scientists will show what degree they achieved and what companies they've worked for.
That and google will further help you in your decision
