A Bachelor of Arts degree is a four-year undergraduate degree that tends to focus more on the liberal arts than the sciences. Most programs require a minimum of 120 semester hours or approximately 40 courses. The first two years typically involve core curriculum studies followed by two years of courses unique to a student’s particular field of study.

What is a BA in Data Science? This field of study is fairly rigorous and involves a lot of mathematics and data analysis studies. Students learn to extract insights and stories form data in various forms. Courses may include programming, data structures, principles of database systems, statistical analysis and mathematics. It is a unifying discipline that combines statistics and data analysis to draw inferences and conclusions from accumulated data. It uses the scientific method and other processes to interpret data sources.

The ability to extract, transform and load data is a valuable skill to this day and age. Data is all around people all the time. Having the skills to gather and understand this information sets data scientists apart. Students usually develop advanced analyzing and storytelling skills. Data science goes beyond information and teaches business skills as well.

A Bachelor of Arts in Data Science is an easy degree to develop online. It is interlaced with computer science, which lends it to at-home study. Different programs and locations come at different costs. Contact the admissions office of your school of choice for more detailed information.

With the skills learned in data science, many career paths are opened from programming to data engineers. Data scientists guide a project from start to end. They create data processing models and analyze findings to form a story. Data engineers focus more on processing large data sets. Data analysts are able to scrutinize data and discover patterns and answer questions. Some graduates may decide to pursue a graduate degree in data science to open up even more career opportunities, such as teaching.
