About the courseData Science is the discovery of knowledge and insight through the analysis of data. As such, it draws on computer science, mathematics, and statistics. It has emerged as a separate field in response to the avalanche of data from web enabled sensors and instrumentation, mobile devices, web transactions, and the availability of computing power for data storage and analysis. Modern data is challenging not only due to its large scale, but also because it is increasingly heterogeneous and unstructured. Information gleaned from this data is revolutionizing diverse areas, from health policy to high energy physics. In this major, you will use technical skills, theory, and creativity to tackle large and complex data sets to solve real-world problems. You will take a core of data science, computer science, mathematics, and statistics classes and, in your second year, select a concentration in computer science, economics, mathematics, or statistics. All concentrations come together to complete a team capstone project. The economics concentration in the data science major provides students with the technical and theoretical foundations in data science while also allowing for a focus on economics.
