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
  • business
  • computer science
  • cybersecurity
  • 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.
