  • Leveraging data at multiple scales to discover patterns
  • Visualizing trends
  • Explaining the seemingly unexplainable.

Program Overiew

In the Data Science program, your coursework will focus on learning by doing. This includes:

  • Researching from day one as a part of a Grand Challenges Initiative team.
  • Building a strong foundation during your first two years with classes in math and computing.
  • Taking a series of upper-division courses that will help you develop a deeper knowledge of data science.
  • Selecting electives that can help you develop expertise in one area or expand your skill set.

Your program advisor will be helping you throughout the program to tailor your course schedule to align with your interests and goals.
