About this Program
Students will gain literacy and fluency in data science methods and understand their implications for society and the world.
The academic discipline of data science has emerged in recent years to handle the analysis of more readily available "big data" in all areas of life. Data scientists apply tools originating in the fields of computer science, mathematics, and statistics to their core activities: data collection, processing, analysis, inference, and interpretation and communication of such analyses in an ethical manner.
The Data Science minor is open to students from all majors.
