Bachelor of Science in Data Analytics
WSU’s online bachelor of science in data analytics prepares students for careers in the emerging high-demand field of big data. You will learn the tools and techniques to collect, manage, explore and analyze large, complex datasets, and you will be able to effectively communicate your findings to help companies in a wide range of industries make better business decisions.
The interdisciplinary curriculum includes courses in data analytics, computer science, statistics, math and communication. The specialization track gives students a deeper expertise in the area of business. The skills you will learn are highly transferable and graduates can use their knowledge to bring value to a wide spectrum of industries.
Courses are taught by WSU distinguished faculty who also teach on the WSU physical campuses.
To be successful in the program, students must have strong math skills. Math 171, 172, and 220 are prerequisites to all Data Analytics courses above CPTS/STAT 115, and must be taken at another college or university. Students can be admitted to the program and take the three math courses concurrently at another school while enrolled in CPTS/STAT 115 and various UCORE undergraduate courses at WSU Global Campus.
Data analytics is currently the most in demand of all technical fields, with starting salaries in six figures for some application areas.
Core data skills acquired in the degree enable you to work as a data analyst in diverse employment sectors, including manufacturing, e-commerce, transportation, retail, health care, government, insurance, finance, education, environmental management, and more.
