As data science’s popularity continues to surge, more people are looking to data science as a potential field of study, more organizations are looking to hire professional data scientists, and more universities are creating data science programs to fill this urgent need. The University of Notre Dame is taking a lead in creating an innovative online program to give students the edge they need to perform at the highest level in Data Science. The team behind Master of Science in Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics: Data Science Specialization program (MS-ACMS) makes use of DataCamp’s interactive courses and group features to build a best-in-class online degree program. This case study explores how Notre Dame makes use of DataCamp to support their innovative online graduate program in data science.
DataCamp sat down with Professor Elliott Visconsi, Chief Academic Digital Officer at the University of Notre Dame to discuss how DataCamp fits into the program and curriculum.
