Overview

Specialization in Data Analytics

Analytics is situated at the confluence of statistics, computer science and mathematics all centered on finding, interpreting and presenting meaningful patterns in data. We offer a Bachelor of Science in Analytics with specialization in either Data Analytics or Business Analytics, with co-operative education options available in both specializations. As data increasingly pervades our lives, graduates in Analytics are in high demand across a broad spectrum of fields including government, business, and technology.

The Major in Analytics with a specialization in Data Analytics requires a total of 120 semester hours of credit, as described below:
