The Center for Data Science is thrilled to announce the official launch of our brand new undergraduate Major in Data Science! Stay tuned for details, including course requirements, and more, coming shortly!
Data science skills are the new language of the 21st century, and are increasingly a requirement for all students entering the workforce, government, or research after graduation.
The Center for Data Science currently offers two courses designed to equip students of all backgrounds and any level of programming & statistical skills to become practitioners of thoughtful, rigorous, and ethical data science. We also offer an innovative Minor in Data Science, which is open to all undergraduate students from across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.

Minor in Data Science
MINOR IN DATA SCIENCE
The minor in data science allows students to learn foundational computational analysis concepts and use data science methods and tools to answer important questions. Students will be able to apply those concepts to a range of domain-specific issues that relate to their major course of study. Conferred by the College of Arts and Science (CAS), the minor was co-developed by CAS, the Center for Data Science, and the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
Students completing the minor will:
- Gain a robust introduction to data science principles, while specializing in other liberal arts fields
- Develop hands-on experience working with real world datasets
- Cultivate knowledge about the ethical issues related to data science
- Experience locally-inflected data science that explores contemporary urban and social issues
This minor is suitable for students in all disciplines, and gives students from all backgrounds an array of core data science skills, methodologies, and philosophies.
