Studying Data Analytics
The Data Analytics major strives to educate students in the understanding, examination, and utilization of marketplace data using analytical procedures, quantitative reasoning, and rigorous deduction. The courses, however, do not require calculus or advanced mathematics.
Students will progress from a procedural/computational understanding to a broad understanding encompassing logical reasoning, generalization, abstraction, and proof. They will analyze data carefully and communicate results and conclusions effectively.
Students will learn a variety of technological tools: math software, including computer systems, visualization software, statistical packages, and computer programming languages that deal with “Big Data” in a rapidly-changing digital world.
