Abstract

Rong Tang, Associate Professor Director, and Watinee Sae-Lim, Doctoral Student, from the School of Library and Information Science, Simmons College, share research presented in their article "Data science programs in U.S. higher education: An exploratory content analysis of program description, curriculum structure, and course focus" published in the journal of Education for Information.

Their exploratory content analysis of 30 randomly selected Data Science (DS) programs from eight disciplines revealed significant gaps in current DS education in the United States. These findings have implications for improving DS education in iSchools and across other disciplines.
