The Minor in Data Science at Misericordia University intends to give students the practical knowledge of the methods and techniques of data analysis, as well as the ability to think critically about data analysis applications. The minor will give students from a wide variety of disciplines a working knowledge of statistics, probability, and computation. This will allow these students not just to participate in data science projects, but to design and carry out rigorous computational and inferential analysis for their field of interest.
Elements of this program are offered via Misericordia’s partnership with Rize Education. Rize is an education company that works with a consortium of small private colleges and seeks to prepare students for careers in the fastest-growing fields by helping these colleges offer relevant programs based in project-based work. The partnership allows students to earn Misericordia credit toward in-demand degree programs while receiving a liberal-arts education. A select number of courses are designed by top academics and industry leaders, vetted by Misericordia, and taught by expert faculty at peer, accredited institutions that value the small college experience.
