The Center for Data Science offers a suite of undergraduate courses and programs designed to equip and empower students of all backgrounds and with any level of prior programming & statistics experience to become practitioners of rigorous, thoughtful, and ethical data science.
Data science is the new language of the 21st century and has become a cornerstone of a liberal arts education. Data science skills are also increasingly a requirement for students entering the workforce, government, or research after graduation. As more and more academic disciplines, industries, and media outlets rely on data-driven decision making, research, and evidence, being a sophisticated consumer of data and visualizations, as well as being empowered to analyze and generate discoveries, is naturally becoming a prerequisite for being a global citizen, scientist, and leader.
We are pleased to announce our new innovative and interdisciplinary major and minor in Data Science. Both programs of study are open to all undergraduate students from across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, and our courses are open to all students. Students who complete the major in data science will be equipped to apply existing data science theories and technologies to problems in many liberal arts domains across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. They will also acquire a thorough knowledge base in computer science and statistics, as well as a deep understanding of current theories, research methodologies, and tools needed to analyze big data, make inferences, explore data-driven decision making, and engage in ethical and privacy considerations.
We invite you to explore the above menu for more on our major, minor, course offerings, and contact information. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions about our programs, courses, or anything else.
