Data Science

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:

  1. formulate questions in a discipline that can be answered with data;
  2. use tools and algorithms from statistics, applied mathematics, and computer science for analyses;
  3. visualize, interpret, and explain results cogently, accurately, and persuasively;
  4. understand the underlying social, political, and ethical contexts that are inevitably tied to data-driven decision-making.
