A major in data science requires between 82 and 85 credit hours, depending upon ACT/SAT scores or successful completion of placement testing. Students have the opportunity to complete one of two optional tracks, determined by selection of guided electives. The computation-intensive track involves selecting all three guided electives from computer science, data science, mathematics, and statistics courses. The business analytics track involves selecting all three guided electives from the business informatics courses.
The data science major automatically gives the student a minor in computer science. Depending upon the selection of the three guided elective courses, the student may also earn a minor in applied statistics, business informatics, or mathematics.
