To earn a minor in data science, a student must earn a grade of “C-” or better in all of the courses listed.  A lesser grade in any of these courses must be replaced before the minor in data science will be granted. In addition, lesser grades in any of these courses preclude taking subsequent courses for which the deficient courses are prerequisite.
