Minor in data science Description
The minor in data science teaches students foundational concepts in computational analysis and uses this growing field's methods and tools to answer important questions. Students learn to apply these 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 across the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences;
- Develop hands-on experience working on real-world data science problems;
- Cultivate knowledge about the ethical issues related to data science; and
- Experience locally-inflected data science that explores urban and social impacts.
This minor is suitable for students in all disciplines, and gives students from all backgrounds a robust introduction to the field.
