Program Overview

Immaculata’s Bachelor of Science in Data Analytics will help you learn to collect, organize, and use data to provide organizations with meaningful, timely information. You will use algorithms, computer programming skills, and database systems to manage information, analyze it, and use it for strategic decision-making.  

Data analysts require a versatile skill set that integrates subject matter knowledge, analytical thought, computing skills, and ethics. Business experts and data scientists collaborate to develop meaningful questions, analyze data to find answers to those questions, explain and visualize results, and use the results to strategize about future endeavors.

This program will help you cultivate systematic, orderly, and exact habits of thought to analyze situations and solve problems. The program will also prepare you for a career in an evolving field by laying a foundation for lifelong learning, rooted in essential concepts and adaptable to emerging trends and technologies.

Program Highlights

You can participate in professional and social activities, such as:

  • Seminars led by mathematicians and data science professionals
  • Opportunities for membership in professional organizations
  • Opportunities to participate in faculty-mentored research projects in data analytics and information technology. Recent student research projects have focused on big data, women in STEM fields, and cyberwarfare.
  • Trips to local conferences
