Data Science Concentration


Data science is an emerging and interdisciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge from data.

The Data Science Concentration is designed to offer an opportunity for students, mainly in Applied Math and Applied Computing, to acquire data science knowledge and skills in addition to their major

Students are required to take a total of 40 credits, of which 11 credits are of Math, 20 of Computer Science, and 9 of Data Science. Students in Applied Math and Applied Computing are able to complete the requirements as major courses, cognate course, and GE free electives.
