In the core courses, students will get a fundamental understanding of data science through classes that highlight machine learning, data analysis and data management. The core courses will also introduce students to ethical and legal implications surrounding data science. Beyond the core courses, students will take three courses in domain specific pathways developed in collaboration with academic departments across the university.  Through these pathways, students will be able to utilize the skills and techniques they learned in the core courses within their own field or area of expertise.
