The BS in Data Science program teaches students to analyze data, interpret data and draw meaningful conclusions. Students learn the mathematical and statistical foundations of data science and how those principles may be applied to cutting-edge tools and technology. Our project-based courses provide the opportunity for students to use the analytic skills and technical knowledge of data science to investigate a question in their minor (or second major).
