About

Turn data into actionable intel. Find the meaning in the numbers, and use it to manage and interpret data to solve the world’s problems. The Data Science program is offered by Houghton College.

Overview

A data science major gives you the diverse background and critical thinking skills to make sense of the data-driven world and be a creative problem solver. Use it to improve the education process, understand and prevent athletic injuries, improve and tailor medicine to individual patient needs, impact the humanitarian/nonprofit/government sectors, and more.

Coursework combines computer science, statistics and a choice of application areas (e.g., business, biology, chemistry, mathematics, communication, psychology, political science), including an internship.
