Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Degree

Data Scientists provide insight and predictions from data. They work in research labs, startups, corporations, universities, governments, and nonprofits. A degree in data science provides students with skills for acquiring, managing, visualizing, mining, and modeling data. Students in this program learn tools and techniques for working with Big Data and using machine learning for making predictions. They consider implications of decisions made with data for human rights and privacy from an appropriate ethical, legal, and Christian framework (covered in ACE and reinforced in program courses). The program consists of a core set of data science, computer science, mathematics, and statistics courses and the choice of one track where students learn discipline-specific techniques and issues.

The Data Science BS program is shared between the Department of Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Computing in the College of Professions.
