The ability to extract meaningful information from large volumes of data is becoming an essential skill in every job, every industry, and virtually every decision. The demand is high and the possibilities are endless for professionals who can interpret data to produce new and potentially useful knowledge in their own field of work.
This interdisciplinary minor program will equip students with the statistical, mathematical and computational tools required to sift through terabytes of information to identify new trends, patterns, connections and structures.
Students must complete 18 credits for the minor. Of those 18 credits, a minimum of 12 credits of minor coursework must be completed in addition to any courses (required courses or program electives) included in the major curriculum.
Interested students should apply to the minor early in their academic career, usually by the fifth semester of college work, but no later than the end of the drop/add period of the first semester of their last year of didactic work.
