Program Contact: Jill Shahverdian: 203-582-3663
The minor in Applied Statistics and Data Science is available to a student in any major. The six required courses are designed to develop students into critical consumers of data, who can work with data and present data in a way that tells a story, enabling effective decision making and problem solving. Critical thinkers who can analyze data to help solve organizational problems are already in high demand and future growth is predicted to be robust.
Students who complete this minor will have a toolkit they can use in their daily lives, which can be applied to any field of study or career path.
