Social Data Analytics

Social Data Analytics (SoDA) is the integration of social scientific, computational, informational, statistical, and visual analytics approaches to the analysis of large or complex data that arise from human interaction. SoDA merges social science and data science to improve our ability to learn from social data. The Penn State SoDA Program is the first of its kind in the world, and offers both doctoral and undergraduate degrees.
