Informatics & Modeling


Sharing analytical approaches and ways of thinking between disciplines can lead to important advances.

Analytical approaches using informatics and modeling are becoming increasingly important in many fields of study, and much of the curriculum is increasingly emphasizing these approaches. The Certificate Program provides a framework to guide students in developing these analytical skills based on the following two pathways:

  • Computational Science and Quantitative World Modeling (CSM)
  • Integrative Genomic Sciences (IGS)

The certificate, analogous to a minor at other institutions, provides an excellent complement to many of our majors including our science majors. As part of your transcript, the certificate program will indicate your interest and skills in informatics and modeling methods of analysis.

Program requirements are described in the links for the CSM and IGS pathways.
