Program Overview

The minor provides students with a background in data analysis and statistical methodology. It is intended to complement undergraduate degree programs such as computer science, economics, environmental engineering, geography, mathematics, nursing, psychology, public administration, sociology, and systems engineering.

Opportunities

Data analysis has become an important quantitative methodology in a wide variety of applications because of massive accumulation of “Big Data” in many industries. Depending on their major, students with a minor in data analysis may find jobs in health care, finance, government (federal, state, and local), and cyber defense.
