  • Project (0.5, or 1): The culminating project is to be a large data analysis project, which may be done in conjunction with a course, or as a separate independent study worth 0.5 or 1 credit. The project must be approved by the program committee, and it requires a paper and a public presentation. It is recommended that the project focus on a field outside of mathematics, statistics, and computer science to which Data Science applies.

Note: Students combining a major in Data Science with a major in Mathematics, Computer Science, or Integrative Business and Management may apply no more than 3 courses to both programs simultaneously. Students majoring in Data Science may not minor in Statistics.
