Course Title: Data Science Capstone
Start Date: 01/23/2024 End Date: 05/07/2024
Term: Spring Semester 2024
Description: The Capstone is a research seminar that empowers students to design and execute a significant data science research project. Through group review of journal articles and targeted lectures, students will develop a thorough understanding of each of the components of a successful research project including defining their research question, conducting a literature review, identifying an appropriate data set, designing and implementing a defensible methodology, and presenting and interpreting their results in text, tables, and figures. There will be frequent opportunities for students to present their work, and their capstone will culminate in a written report. Concurrently, students will read and discuss several case studies that address issues of ethics involved with the collection, treatment, and analysis of data.
