“Going into my freshman year, I was very unsure of what I was interested in and thought I would be undecided in my major far into my journey at UNC. Taking the III course that was offered to me in my first semester completely changed this belief as I found myself studying two subjects that I started to fall in love with, and was even able to see how they could connect and work together. Thanks to the experiences and opportunities provided in Humans and the Cosmos, I was able to confidently (and eagerly!) declare philosophy and data science as my major and minor courses of study, and I have not looked back since!”

“While many were hesitant to take part in a data literacy class their freshman year, the knowledge I gained from this one-credit course has proven invaluable. From gaining a sociological standpoint on the impact of information and data to grappling with excel formulas, Professor Lang’s videos are advantageous resources helping me in my current role as an intern and will indeed support me for many years to come. “

“Before this class, I had no experience organizing or visualizing data and didn’t realize how many different ways I’d utilize the skills this course taught me. Over half of my classes including gen eds and my specific classes for my major incorporated at least one of the platforms we learned about, like Excel. This course included a wide range of information without it being overwhelming by keeping the content relevant to ways college students could employ the information and I would recommend it to every student in a heartbeat.”
