About Data Analysis

Blending statistics and computing to develop methods that support data analysis, this interdisciplinary minor may appeal to you if you major in business, finance, or economics. And if you intend to do research in any area that requires quantitative thinking, this minor could set you apart as you apply to graduate schools.


"The faculty at Georgetown are incredibly generous and knowledgeable. I began my graduate studies in Statistics remarkably well-equipped, due to the unparalleled expertise and boundless enthusiasm of my professors."

 - Woody Burchett, ’10, PhD, Statistics Researcher at Pfizer, Groton, CT

“The Georgetown Mathematics and Data Analysis programs helped to prepare me for graduate school as well as the job market. The skills I learned helped me immensely, and the memories I made will last a lifetime.”
