Data Science, B.S.

The data in our world is currently estimated to be doubling at a rate of every two years. This means that in the next two years alone, the amount of data generated will be equivalent to all of the data that currently exists. Data Science is a degree program that prepares students for our new and increasingly data-driven world. This preparation includes an appropriate background in mathematics, computer science and statistics along with subject matter from an appropriate cognate area such as psychology. Successful students will learn programming in current data science languages such as Python and R as well as being introduced to topics such Big Data, Data Visualization, Regression Analysis and other topics in Applied Statistics.
