Data science is a growing discipline aimed at equipping our students to enter a modern workforce that is increasingly data-driven. Converse’s data science minor prepares students to succeed in both the job market and graduate studies. From their first introductory course, students begin gaining skills in visualizing and analyzing data in programs such as Excel, Google Sheets, Tableau, R, and Python. Converse’s small student-to-faculty ratio allows for plenty of one-on-one faculty attention as students build their knowledge base.
Our introductory courses meet in the new Bank of America Data Analytics Learning Laboratory, which emphasizes a dynamic learning environment. Students will be actively engaged in labs and group projects in the classroom. This collaborative environment also fosters effective communication and presentation skills.
