The Data Analytics minor trains students to use data to inform decision-making and create solutions. Students learn to acquire and collect raw data in various formats, convert raw data to usable formats and then understand how to appropriately analyze the data to draw accurate and useful conclusions. Graduates of the program will be able to use their skills across a wide-range of industries as well as in the non-profit and government sectors.
Admission to a minor is open to students declared in a bachelor’s degree, the A.A.B. or A.A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree (not Individualized Program major). Students declared only in the A.A. or A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree in Individualized Program may not declare a minor. Students may not pursue a minor and a major in the same discipline.
To declare the Data Analytics minor, students must have completed following courses (or their equivalent) with a minimum C- grade: ECON 22060 and (MATH 11012 or MATH 12002).
