Data analysis is where theory meets practice. It is a process of organizing, summarizing, visualizing and modeling data to extract meaning and actionable information. Wesleyan's data analysis minor develops a background in statistical methods and statistical computing by combining appropriate theory courses with extensive hands-on work and project-based learning opportunities that extend beyond classroom walls and meetings.

What You'll Study

  • The data analysis minor requires the completion of five courses which span applications in different disciplines that are supported by the appropriate mathematical, statistical and computing foundations.

  • In addition to basic background knowledge courses, as a data analysis minor you can choose from a list of foundation courses—two courses from the mathematical, statistical and computing foundation groups, each from a different group—and from a long list of applied electives that accommodate diverse intellectual interests.
