Minor in Data Science

About the Minor

Data science provides a foundation for problem-solving in a data-driven society. The minor in Data Science combines basic courses in statistics, information and technology, and social contexts to address problems that require large and disparate datasets.

Any student in any major can benefit from a minor in data science. Graduates with such background knowledge are prepared to actively participate in the application of data science within their major area of study.

The minor is available to all University students in good standing with the exception of students majoring in Data Science.
