Vast amounts of data are collected every day and the need for those who can understand it is growing. Organizations are seeking professionals who can analyze and make informed decisions based on the collected data.
The Data Analytics program helps develop the skills and knowledge to extract meaningful and useful information from any raw data. It is an interdisciplinary program that offers excellent career opportunities or opens the door to pursue graduate work in data science, computational science, business analytics, or healthcare analytics.
We have also partnered with the National Science Foundation to offer our Scholars Program for Environmental Challenges Scholarship for a small number of high achieving students in five of our UC STEM majors, including Data Analytics.
This program will help you gain entry into a growing field – in the next 20 years, data science needs are projected to grow in every business, private or public institutions, healthcare, education, government and more.
It is a great major for those who have a strong background or interest in mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, biology, business, healthcare, or computer science.
You can combine data science with another subject to pursue a double major to create more career or graduate school options.
Also available as a minor.
