Beginning in fall 2023, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will offer two new undergraduate degrees in data science: a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Statistical Data Science, offered through the Department of Statistics, and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Applied Data Analysis. Both degrees require 36 credits. Students will also conduct a final capstone research project, which will apply the core data science skills to a practical problem.
The interdisciplinary degrees will provide opportunities for students to explore data generation, analysis, visualization, and ethics. Students will also select domain areas that range from American political institutions to financial analysis to population dynamics.
