Overview

Experts in data analytics have quickly become valued for their ability to process large amounts of data, detect significant trends, and make insights that drive important decisions.

This Data Analytics major from Ohio Wesleyan University combines study in math and computer science with a firm foundation in the liberal arts. In her TED Talk on challenges in interpreting big data, data analyst Susan Etlinger said: "What we need to do instead is spend a little bit more time on things like the humanities and sociology, and the social sciences, rhetoric, philosophy, ethics, because they give us context that is so important for big data, and because they help us become better critical thinkers."

Every data analytics major works under the guidance of a faculty member to complete a capstone research project. Students take the classroom theory and methods they've learned and put them into practice in actual challenges faced in society.
