Department Website

Program Description

The joint major in data science and mathematics trains students to use data science methods, and enables them to understand the mathematical theories that go into the analysis of large data sets. It will allow students to apply mathematical theories to real-world challenges that need data science and computational solutions.

This is an interdisciplinary major comprised of eighteen courses (72 credits) offered by the Center for Data Science and Courant’s Department of Mathematics.
