Objectives and contents 

The Minor in Computer and Data Science helps to provide students with basic skills to use tools for computer science and data science for the management, analysis and interpretation of the bulk of information provided by different digital sources. In particular, case studies will be considered by the analysis and management of relative data on social media, a very current field of study, useful to understand the mechanisms that regulate the collective choices of the society in which we live, with the aim of finally using the acquired knowledge for strategic or decisional choices.

Language

This Minor is taught in Italian.
