Data Analytics Degree
NWU’s degree in data analytics brings together skills in computer programming, quantitative reasoning, collaboration, communication and creative thinking. Our students develop a broad technological toolkit they can use to obtain, visualize and analyze complex data.
The cognitive flexibility and problem-solving skills we develop in this program are key to understanding life in an information-rich society. They’re also crucial to success in our rapidly changing professional environments. By creating data visualizations, you can effectively convey a message or tell a story.
Data analytics majors may choose from six concentration areas of specialization:
- advanced data analytics
- computer science
- project management
- supply chain management
Academically equivalent, both the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science will fully prepare you for a career in data analytics. If you choose to graduate with two majors, and one major is only offered as a B.A. or B.S., your data analytics major will match the first degree.
