Double Major?

Data science courses often count toward another degree or certificate, paving the way for a double major.

Courses in a specific area, known as the domain core and electives are usually similar to those required for a bachelor’s degree in many of the core fields. By completing additional required courses in the domain area, a student could receive a double major while leaving plenty of credits for additional elective courses.
