The following approved substitutions may count toward the minor if any of the five required courses are counted toward a student’s major:
CS 314: Database Systems
ECON 328: Applied Econometrics
ECON 338: Time Series Analysis
MATH 215: Linear Algebra
MATH 303: Regression and Time Series
Students pursuing a minor in Data Science should consider the following:
Though there are three options for satisfying the introductory course requirement, students who have not already taken CS 126 or CS 127 should enroll in CS/DS 125, as it is the most relevant to the minor.
Students pursuing a Data Science minor should seek to take courses in their major and/or area of interest that involve the collection, analysis, or other use of data. More exposure to the use of data within their field will provide more opportunities to identify connections to Data Science and to develop ideas for a capstone project.
