Data Science

Bachelor of science in data science

The departments of computer science and statistics jointly offer  a B.S. degree in data science. Data Science is a rapidly evolving discipline and sits at the intersection of statistics and computer science. This evolution has been driven by the exponential increase in processing power available and the ever-increasing amount of data now collected, stored and available in every facet of business, science and government. The growing need for big data means it is likely that most jobs for statistics graduates will include a big data component. It is also clear that many computer science undergraduate graduate job opportunities will involve big data as well. This B.S degree prepares practitioners in data science.
