What Can I Do with a Data Analytics Degree?

In our technology-driven society, data is everywhere. Interpreting that data helps organizations make important decisions. 

Data analytics pairs extremely well with other fields that commonly use large and complex data sets. Think of political scientists or sociologists analyzing census data, digital marketers or financial planners following market trends, or biologists or chemists tracking clinical trials.

In this major, students develop high-demand technical skills in SQL, Excel, Python, R, data visualization and data analysis. In addition, they get real-world experience of working on projects and on teams through an internship and project-based courses. Acquiring these skills will give you a significant advantage in securing a job in the public or private sectors.
