Undergraduate Certificate in Data Science

We are awash in data, models, and predictions. This flood of data has opened up seemingly unlimited possibilities: it allows businesses to make informed recommendations for their clients, health officials to use text and image processing to track and classify health information, or community organizers to help spread the news and civic information through social networks. Whatever your field of study, you need to deal with data. This interdisciplinary data science certificate prepares students to harness data and help realize some of its many possibilities. Students will receive training in mathematics, computation, and statistics; data collection, management, description, and analysis; communication and project management; and ethics, problem-solving, and judgment and decision making.
