Come learn to acquire, explore, and manage the data that’s changing the world. Our data science program blends mathematics, statistics, and computer science to give you the skills you need to succeed. Come study probability and statistics, machine learning, data visualization, databases, and data structures. You’ll graduate knowing R, Python, and SQL — three computational tools in high demand in the data science industry.

There are a lot of good programs that help prepare you for data science jobs, but few put you on a path to become that unicorn who's competent in statistics, mathematics, and computer science.”

Join the Data Science Association

The Data Science Association creates a social and academic environment for data science, mathematics, computer science, psychology, and economics majors at USF. Students organize data-driven visualization, software development, and research projects, and take part in local data challenges and hack nights. Students have also volunteered to teach coding to high schoolers around the San Francisco Bay Area.
