Courses used to fulfill the requirements for the minor in data science may not be used to fulfill the requirements for another major/minor except where permitted by Weinberg College double-counting rules. When necessary (for example when a student plans to complete a major in statistics and a minor in data science), students can consult an adviser in the Department of Statistics about selection of replacement course(s) to satisfy the credit requirements of the data science minor.
