The recommended four-year plan is designed to provide a blueprint for students to complete their degrees within four years. Students must meet with their Major Advisor to develop a more individualized plan to complete their degree. This plan assumes that no developmental courses are required. If developmental courses are needed, students may have additional requirements to fulfill which are not listed in the plan and may extend degree completion.
* As part of their degree requirements, Data Science majors are also required to complete a minor or double major to gain domain knowledge in a particular field, to better contextualize their data studies. Most minor programs require 5-6 courses. Any minor or second major can be selected: https://www.ramapo.edu/majors-minors/a-z/
** DATA elective courses may require pre-requisites outside the program requirements. For example, Math 305 Differential Equations, Math 245 Numerical Analysis, and Math 253 Probability each have Math 122 Calculus II as a pre-requisite. Additionally, Math 253 Probability also allows the option for Math 122 Calculus II to be taken as a co-requisite.
