Data science students have a skillset unlike any other – the ability to understand how to take big data sets and use scientific methods to make sense of the information they hold.
Data science is an innovative major that provides strong foundations in statistics, math, and computer science and then allows you to choose what you want to focus on for your higher-level classes. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do after college, but now that I have found data science, I am very excited about my future career opportunities.
