The BSc in Data Science will prepare students to become professionals who excel at manipulating and analysing data sets that don't succumb readily to standard statistical and programming methodologies. You will learn to develop software, use toolkits and run clusters to solve problems and inform better decision-making. As one of the most employable technical subjects across the globe, the BSc in Data Science at Goldsmiths will develop your marketable skills in data analysis as well as provide you with the practical and technical skills to program with data-rich applications in mind. Students who complete the BSc Data Science will gain knowledge in comparable programming skills and mathematical knowledge. Students will also be empowered to engage in debates about the use and abuse of personal and other data and the place of data in society. What is Data Science? Data Science involves dealing with data, at whatever scale: a small amount of data from surveys or polls, all the way up to a record of every mouse movement and keystroke by every user of Google's search page. The techniques used to understand the modern torrent of data are at the intersection of computing and mathematics, including statistics and machine learning, and there is a high demand in industry, in charities and in the public sector for professionals who have expertise in developing software to perform data analytic tasks.
