“The Statistical & Data Sciences (SDS) Program links faculty and students from across the College interested in learning things from data. At Smith, students learn statistics by doing–class time emphasizes problem-solving and hands-on contact with data. Many courses employ student-driven projects that allow students to pursue their interest in fields such as economics, psychology, political science, sociology, engineering, biology, environmental science, neuroscience, and geology.
The Program is designed to produce highly-skilled, versatile statisticians and data scientists who possess powerful abilities for analyzing data. As such, SDS students learn not only how to build statistical models and interpret their parameters. Students learn to use their ingenuity to ‘wrangle’ with complex data streams, and construct data visualizations.”
The program prepares students either for graduate studies, or for employment in industry, government, or non-governmental organizations. Courses are coordinated with other colleges in the area – Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and the University of Massachusetts.
Recommended Prerequisites: an applicant is recommended to have taken 4 years of English composition & literature, 3 years of foreign language, 3 years of mathematics, 3 years of lab science, 2 years of history. Standardized tests (SAT 1, ACT, TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE) required for international students.
