The increased amount of available data has escalated the demand for data science professionals. The purpose of the BS in Data Science program is to provide students with foundational knowledge in the core competency areas of data science. Students will learn to use data to identify trends and patterns, solve problems, communicate results, and recommend solutions. The program will provide opportunities for students to practice these skills across application areas from different domains (e.g., geography, business, education). Graduates of this program will have the computer science, mathematics and statistics, and data analytics knowledge, skills, and abilities to work as data professionals.
