Program description

B.S. Data Analytics

Data analytics is all about problem solving. An offshoot of Data Science, students in this area of study use tools from computer science, mathematics, statistics, and communication to collect, organize, and analyze material that explains problems, and then to interpret and communicate what they've learned in order to make informed decisions. Applied data analytics engages a wide range of fields—business and finance, energy, the environment, healthcare, logistics, and security. To summarize, a data analytics degree helps develop skills necessary to identify problems, explain them and make informed decisions regarding possible solutions.

The undergraduate data analytics degree prepares students to assist a wide variety of employers with the collection and interpretation of information to best serve clients, customers, and the public. Data Analytics majors build upon a foundation in mathematics and statistics to focus on one of three concentrations—biostatistics, computational analytics, or business analytics. Students completing the data analytics degree program are prepared to enter professions using data analytics or pursue graduate education in statistics, mathematical modeling, or more advanced analytical techniques.

Admission requirements

First-year international applicants must submit official copies of one test that assesses English competency. Husson University accepts the TOEFL (minimum score of 75) or IELTS (minimum score 6). Students who have been studying in a total English immersion environment for two or more years may replace the test of English competency with the SAT or ACT. In addition, after acceptance, students will complete an English and Math Placement Exam prior to class placement. Assessments help to ensure course placements that provide the strongest support for academic success.
