Take a minute and think about data science... now join us to reimagine data science and explore all the depth and breadth this field has to offer.

 

When thinking about data science, many people picture computer scientists or statisticians. However, companies and government agencies express their interest in employing social scientists with strong quantitative skills to execute on data science projects. Social scientists place data into the context necessary to help discover meaningful data-based insights from business transactions, telecommunication networks, websites, and more, including flaws in the data and potential biases.
