Overview

The Statistics and Data Science program of University of Evansville combines state-of-the-art tools and techniques from the field of data science with a mathematically rigorous tradition of classical applied statistics. Students in the program will…

  • Engage through project-driven courses. Data analysis projects offered throughout the curriculum expose students to the entire work cycle of predictive modeling, including problem formulation, acquisition and cleaning of data, model selection and fitting, interpretation, and reporting.
  • Master cutting-edge statistical software. Students gain fluency in the statistical software currently in use within business and industry, including R, Python, and BigQuery.
  • Receive a first-class liberal arts education. Working with “big data” requires more than quantitative and technological skills—it also requires an ability to frame questions, to bring diverse teams together, to make ethical and informed decisions, and to communicate results to decision-makers. A UE education provides students with broad foundational knowledge in the arts and sciences, as well as the critical thinking and communication skills that employers value.

Career Opportunities

Decision-makers have access to more data than ever before, but deriving meaning and actionable insights from that data requires specialized tools and expertise. For that reason, graduates with degrees in statistics and data science are in high demand.

Currently, there is a global data scientist shortage. It is estimated that within the next two years, there will be twice as many data science jobs as there will be people to fill those roles. This means extensive job opportunities for individuals with the necessary education and skills.
