Why Choose a Data Science Minor at Salisbury University?

How useful is a data science minor? You may be surprised! The data science minor appeals to students from a variety of disciplines because whether it is the sciences, the social sciences, the humanities or business, the reach of data within a discipline and the need to understand its possibilities and its impact on society are continuously growing. A data science minor may help a student from any major as they analyze and manipulate the complex data that is prevalent in all future careers.

Decision-makers have unprecedented access to voluminous sets of data; however, deriving meaning and actionable insights from that data requires specialized tools and expertise.
