University of Georgia’s Departments of Statistics and Computer Science in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences have launched a new Bachelor of Science degree in Data Science. Learn about our new interdisciplinary Data Science major, which is at the interface of statistics and computer science. 


Overview of the Major: The Data Science major will provide necessary background in mathematics and build a strong foundation in Data Science, covering data structures, algorithms and database management, data collection, data mining, machine learning, modeling, and inference. Students graduating with a B.S. in Data Science will know how to develop software, design and maintain databases, process data in distributed environments, analyze the data using techniques from statistics, data mining and machine learning, provide visualizations of the data or the results of analysis, and assist decision makers. The program at the University of Georgia will include experiential learning via a capstone course, which will focus on applying the acquired knowledge and skills in a real-world data analytics project.

Student Learning Outcomes: All graduates will be able to:

  • Develop software, algorithms; design and manage a variety of databases and structures, process data in distributed environments;
  • Collect and analyze the data using techniques from statistics, data mining, machine learning; 
  • Provide visualizations of the data and build statistical models to facilitate inference.
  • Interpret results of statistical analysis and assist decision makers 

Career Opportunities: 

All graduates earning the B.S. in Data Science degree will learn the essential skills necessary to pursue careers in a variety of data-oriented companies [e.g., computing/internet companies (Google, Amazon, Facebook, IBM); engineering companies (Intel, Samsung, Boeing); finance/insurance (Goldman Sachs, AIG, Liberty Mutual); pharmaceutical companies (Johnson & Johnson)]; government/national labs (NASA, NIST, DoD) or pursue graduate studies.
