Bachelor of Science in Data Analytics
The undergraduate degree in data analytics prepares students to assist a wide variety of employers with the collection and interpretation of information to best serve clients, customers, and the public. Students build upon a foundation in mathematics and statistics to focus on one of three concentrations - biostatistics, computational analytics, or business analytics. They use tools from computer science, mathematics, and statistics to collect, organize, and analyze material that explains problems, and then they interpret and communicate what they've learned in order to make informed decisions. Applied data analytics engages a wide range of fields such as business and finance, energy, the environment, healthcare, logistics, and security. Students completing the B.S. degree are prepared to enter professions using data analytics or pursue graduate education in statistics, mathematical modeling, or more advanced analytical techniques.
