Data Analytics Minor

Program Description

As society becomes increasingly dependent on data, new knowledge, skills, and professions are emerging to collect, organize, interpret, and use data. Data analytics uses data-driven techniques to transform raw data into useful information — information that may be used to identify and solve problems, evaluate claims and make inferences, and influence human decisions and machine models. 

Data Analytics is used in nearly every professional domain, including business and government, health and social services, and science and education. The minor in Data Analytics is an excellent supplement to any major, providing valuable skills for employment in many careers.
