At Notre Dame, we recognize the full picture of what it takes to be successful in data science. Our multidisciplinary MS-ACMS: Data Science program gives students the edge they need to perform at the highest levels of the field by producing three-dimensional data scientists. A data scientist uses quantitative and computational skills to create value from data – transforming and organizing it; analyzing it using computing, mathematics and statistics; and converting it into valuable knowledge. But a three-dimensional data scientist complements quantitative and computational data skills with the ability to communicate effectively and act ethically.
Quantitative and Computational:
We prepare data scientists to perform at the top of the field with deep mathematical and statistical literacy. Our students learn to address deep, complex mathematical and statistical challenges.
We teach data scientists to become talented storytellers, communicating their analytical insights clearly in order to enable organizational decision-making.
By weaving a persistent awareness of the ethics of data science through our curriculum, we enable data scientists to tackle the complex ethical problems of the field as they emerge.
