Data Science (certificate available)

Data Science (DS) is an interdisciplinary minor, housed in the Rutgers-New Brunswick (RU-NB) School of Arts and Sciences (SAS). It is offered jointly by the Departments of Computer Science (CS) and Department of Statistics (Stat) in partnership with the RU-NB School of Communication and Information (SC&I) and other SAS departments. It is designed to equip students to understand the basic principles of computation, statistical inference, and data management, and their applications in a specific domain/field. It is open to ALL students in any RU-NB program.


 

First Semester Planning

We recommend that students register for approximately 15 credits each semester and no more than 16 credits in their first semester. Your schedule should be well-balanced and include coursework from a variety of subjects. A diverse schedule will help you begin your studies in potential majors and minors; explore a breadth of new knowledge across departments at Rutgers to meet SAS Core Curriculum learning goals; and survey broader academic interests through elective courses as you work to attain the required 120 degree credits for graduation.

Your schedule will look something like this: 


Expository Writing or English course per placement results (3 credits)

Major Exploration course (3-4 credits)

Major or Minor Exploration course (3-4 credits)

Course beyond main academic interest, such as SAS Core or elective course (3 credits)

 Byrne or First-Year Interest Group Seminar (FIGS) (1 credit) 

 Total Credits: 15-16
