Data Science Major
The Data Science major is a structured individual major, consisting of twelve (12) courses that include a concentration area, plus a capstone experience. Students are expected to design their major and concentration in consultation with one of the directors listed in the Major homepage and a second advisor from a department related to the concentration. Students are also expected to complete and submit a statement of intent.
- At least two (2) courses must be at the 300-level, and at least one of these must be from STAT or CS as opposed to the concentration.
- A student can begin the major requirements in the first or second year. She can take MATH 115 and/or MATH 116 in their first year as prerequisites for MATH 205, if needed. Ordinarily, at least statistical modeling, data structures, and two 300-level courses must be taken at Wellesley.
