Frequently Asked Questions

What does a data scientist do?

Data scientists take large, unstructured sets of data and use them to create products and solutions. Some data science specialists work on collection and analysis (though this is usually handled by data engineers and data analysts). The vast majority use data to make an impact, whether this is through smart new algorithms or deep learning. 

What skills are needed to be a data scientist?

A strong background in either math or statistics is immensely helpful. Any analytical degree can help you get that – whether it’s mathematics, physics, computer engineering, or even something like accounting. 

On top of the mathematical skills, you need some technical skills – Python, SQL and working with databases, as well as R programming for more senior positions. 

AI and machine learning are an exciting aspect of data science, but they aren’t a requirement for entry-level or even mid-level data scientist jobs. There are plenty of awesome things you can do without AI (but knowing the fundamentals will help you stand out). 

Soft skills such as communication, collaboration, and creativity are also invaluable. This is an ever-evolving field so endless intellectual curiosity, too.

Is there a demand for data scientists?

Yes, absolutely. Businesses are starving for rockstar data scientists. Using data in novel, unexpected, and impactful ways benefits both the company and the end customer. 

In fact, data-driven firms are 23 times more likely to attract new clients and by 2021, they will boost their profits by a healthy $1.8 trillion!

Safe to say that a data scientist is a huge asset to any company. 

How do I get a job in data science?

Start with a B.S. in an analytical field. The exact bachelor’s doesn’t matter as much as the coursework itself. Make sure you have some background in the following: 

  • Statistics and probability.
  • Mathematics (calculus, linear algebra).
  • Programming and IT (coding with Python and being fluent in SQL).

Further your skills through self-study – the Professional Certificate in Data Science by HarvardX is just one of the high-quality online courses available. 

Apply for an internship to get hands-on experience and mentorship from actual people in the field. 

Consider getting a M.S. or even Ph.D. if you want to work in cutting-edge fields like AI and deep learning. 

What can I do with a data science degree?

Data science is not a degree you can get at the B.S. level, but M.S. and Ph.D. programs will open doors to jobs at the forefront of the tech revolution. You can work on Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, as well as go into academia. With this advanced education, virtually all data scientist jobs will be an option for you.
