Data Science Pathways in Education

The educational goal of TRIPODS@Duke is to develop and implement a Data Science Pathway that targets the entire “data to knowledge to action” pipeline to prepare undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoc trainees in cutting-edge data science research, being able to wrangle and analyze data in a responsible and ethical manner, and being able to work effectively in interdisciplinary teams.


Departmental Pathways

Interdepartmental Majors (IDMs) combine two academic disciplines in Trinity College, drawing 7 courses from each to create a major.
