Interdisciplinary Data Science Major
Data plays an ever-increasing role in today’s society. Marketing, ecommerce, security, image processing and genetic testing are just a few places where the use of data is impacting our daily lives, and Data Science is the emerging interdisciplinary field that seeks to extract and quantify knowledge from these data sets. Our major in Data Science (INDS), integrates statistics and mathematics with computer science, allowing students to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to discover and quantify new knowledge from data. Those prepared to integrate advanced technology with modern statistical and mathematical practices will have the opportunity to use in data in action to benefit society. Data scientists turn data into knowledge.
