Data Analytics Major

The ability to work with numbers and data is critical to the modern workforce. Every area of business, science, entertainment and, increasingly, the humanities, is becoming more data-driven. The Data Analytics major prepares graduates to add value to any organization through quantitative decision-making from both structured and unstructured data. As more industries embrace big data and analytics, skills in areas such as data science, statistics, programming, modeling and data mining are becoming more important. Through a combination of mathematics, statistics and computing courses--including intensive, hands-on work with R, Python and SQL--our Data Analytics graduates will not only understand key concepts and techniques, but will also know how to apply them and communicate results to the modern business world.

In addition to the specific major requirements described below, students must also complete the General Education Curriculum, and additional degree requirements for Arts and Sciences majors, including focused-course requirements, additional electives, and a Minor in Business Studies or Business Studies Major.
