This new major is launching Fall 2022. The interdisciplinary data science major, a collaborative effort between the College of Letters and Science and the College of Engineering, prepares students to collect, manage and analyze data, to consider the ethical and societal impacts of data science, and to communicate their discoveries effectively. Data science is one of the fastest-growing occupations in the United States, with projected job growth of 31 percent between 2019 and 2029, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The data science major will launch in Fall 2022 with a foundations track focused on statistics, mathematics and computer science. A new introductory course sequence has been added in “Statistical Data Science.” In computer science, new courses include “Databases for Non-Majors,” “Introduction to Algorithms for Data Science” and “Data Processing Pipelines.” Major requirements also include coursework in statistics, calculus, linear algebra and programming.
