Abstract

Using the Conway model of data science education as a guide, this paper introduces a model for undergraduate data science education for information schools. The core idea of the suggested model is that data science programs in information schools are unique due to their particular substantive expertise, which includes data management, information behavior, and ethics. This paper also suggests that, to create a data science program within an information school, it may be useful to expand curriculums by adding programming, statistics, and machine learning requirements
