The Data Science (DS) minor is interdisciplinary in nature, accessible to all undergraduate students across campus. The minor will develop critical thinking skills and practical capabilities by teaching students to:
- formulate questions in a discipline that can be answered with data;
- use tools and algorithms from statistics, applied mathematics, and computer science for analyses;
- visualize, interpret, and explain results cogently, accurately, and persuasively;
- understand the underlying social, political, and ethical contexts that are inevitably tied to data-driven decision-making.
