Credits: 3
This course exposes students to foundational knowledge in each of the four high level domain areas of data science (Value, Design, Analytics, Systems). This includes an emphasis on ethical issues surrounding the field of data science and how these issues originate and extend into society more broadly.
DS 6001: Practice and Application of Data Science
Credits: 2
This course covers the practice of data science practice, including communication, exploratory data analysis, and visualization. Also covered are the selection of algorithms to suit the problem to be solved, user needs, and data. Case studies will explore the impact of data science across different domains.
DS 6003: Practice and Application of Data Science II
Credits: 1–2
This course covers the practice of data science practice, including communication, exploratory data analysis, and visualization. Also covered are the selection of algorithms to suit the problem to be solved, user needs, and data. Students will use their capstone projects to explore the impact of data science on that domain.
