Data Analytics Minor

Data analytics is an interdisciplinary area of study which includes mathematics and statistics, computer science, and a field of application (e.g. business, biology, chemistry, political science, psychology, ...). The minor in data analytics is an excellent supplement for any major program, and since many of the courses are only two credits or count towards the Core, it is relatively easy to fit into almost any 4-year major program. Students will learn to manage data, program a computer in different languages, and apply statistical, data mining, and machine learning techniques to solve real world problems. A capstone project requires students to address a data analytic problem from problem statement and formulation to completion by reporting results to an appropriate professional audience.
