About Us

The undergraduate Data Science program is an interdisciplinary program of study offered to ALL Rutgers New Brunswick students. It is housed in the Rutgers-New Brunswick (RU-NB) School of Arts and Sciences (SAS). It is offered jointly by the Departments of Computer Science (CS) and Department of Statistics (Stat) in partnership with the RU-NB School of Communication and Information (SC&I) and other SAS departments. It is open to ALL students in any RU-NB program.

It is designed to equip students to understand the basic principles of computation, statistical inference, and data management, and their applications in a specific domain/field, and to earn either a Certificate, or a Minor.

It is supported by the Rutgers-New Brunswick, Chancellor’s Strategic Initiative Funds (SIF).
