Instructor permission required.

DATA-390 Data Science Capstone

Fall. Credits: 4

The Capstone is a research seminar that brings together the three pillars of the Data Science curriculum. The course will start with common readings about research projects across a range of disciplines, including readings that address issues of ethics involved with the collection, treatment, and analysis of data. Concurrently, each student will develop an individual research topic and identify relevant data resources. The remainder of the term will be dedicated to exploring these topics through extensive data analysis, visualization, and interpretation, leading to a final report with complete results and a presentation.

Applies to requirement(s): Math Sciences
V. Barr
Prereq: COMSC-205 and STAT-340. STAT-340 may be taken concurrently (contact instructor for permission).

DATA-390A Data Science Capstone: Data Ethics

Fall. Credits: 1

This portion of the Data Science capstone will include readings and discussion of data ethics and data integrity, and students will also do preliminary identification of their capstone project focus.

Applies to requirement(s): Meets No Distribution Requirement
V. Barr
Restrictions: This course is limited to seniors.; This course is offered to data science majors only.
Prereq: COMSC-205 and STAT-340. STAT-340 may be taken concurrently (contact instructor for permission). Coreq: DATA-390B.

DATA-390B Data Science Capstone Project

Fall. Credits: 3

This portion of the Data Science Capstone will involve refinement of the project focus, identification of data sources, iterative model development and refinement, literature search, and completion of a paper and presentation. Students will also provide substantial feedback on each other's work as a way of sharpening their data science analysis skills.
