Welcome to the Data Science Undergraduate Program! This website provides information about the Data Science major and minor programs. These programs are very new and we expect that they will evolve as they continue to develop. Be sure to frequently consult this site as we plan to use this as a tool to provide program updates and to communicate events sponsored by our program and other departments related to this field. If you would like to be notified of this information on a weekly basis, you can sign up for our Data Science Weekly Newsletter on our Events page!
Data Science Program
Data Science Major
Data science is concerned with drawing useful and valid conclusions from data. Data scientists develop mathematical models, computational methods and tools for exploring, analyzing and making predictions from data. They ask appropriate questions about data and interpret the predictions based on their expertise of the subject domain.
The primary goal for the data science major is to train a generation of students who are equally versed in predictive modeling, data analysis, and computational techniques. To this end, in addition to learning about data science models and methods, students will acquire expertise in a particular subject domain. The major also educates students about the societal impact of data science so that they can make responsible decisions as data science practitioners.
