Data Science

Data Science is an emerging field that has grown out of the tremendous growth in statistics and computer science in the past few decades. Data can help one seek to understand patterns in the world in light of inherent uncertainty. In order to study and address many of the challenges in our society, one must have the tools to process data, perform computations, summarize, investigate, and communicate important findings from the information. Data science can play a critical role in many efforts to enhance the conditions of the human person and the world.
