Data Science Minor

Data Science Minor

Data Science will be open starting September 28th, 2017. As data science major and minor are new programs, course offerings and class sizes will be limited. Data science majors will have priority in enrolling into data science courses. For these reasons, there is no guarantee that students minoring in data science will be able to enroll in data science courses. We strongly encourage students

before enrolling in the data science minor.
