About the Department of Quantitative Theory and Method:
Data science, a staple at many universities, helps students develop competence in collecting, analyzing, and reporting results from data. The Department of Quantitative Theory and Methods (QTM) provides that important grounding but also goes a crucial step further, recognizing that the liberal arts are central to unleashing data’s true potential. Using data intelligently requires well-honed critical thinking and research design skills. That means going beyond the what to the why. It’s about asking the right questions, the deeper questions. It's about collecting, analyzing, and reporting the right data. It's about impactfully communicating what we learn from data, especially given its often technical nature. QTM is a program apart, providing a critical and complementary education to traditional data science programs elsewhere. Our students receive a powerful education that puts them in demand in whatever field they choose, whether business, government, academia, or nonprofit. The Graduate Program Coordinator (GPC) will fill a vital role in shaping QTM’s future of training the next generation of leaders in the data age. QTM seeks a fulltime GPC to develop and implement administrative processes for our new Master of Quantitative Science program.
