Help solve real environmental challenges through data with the BS in Geosciences with a concentration in Data Analytics in Science program.
As a geoscientist, your work will tackle some of the environment’s most pressing challenges both today and into the future. By building upon your skills with expertise in statistics, data collection and database environments, you can take your work a step further - using numbers to ensure the health of earth systems in geographic areas across the globe.
Big Data is transforming organizations across industries, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The occupational outlook for mathematicians and statisticians, for example, looks positive with a 30% job growth expected through 2028.2
Outside of those roles, data analysis can be an attractive addition to a geoscientist’s skill set. Data can help improve geographic information systems, for example, helping inform effective and timely disaster management efforts. Similarly, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses data to examine air, water and land as a means of improving public health.
Courses in the data analytics in science concentration are designed to grow skills that can help set you apart from other professionals in your field. You’ll learn how to apply data collection models for making predictions, diagnose and solve organizational challenges, and create structured database environments that can be used to host complex information.
Courses may include:
Applied Statistics II for Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)
Gathering Requirements and Collecting Data
Introduction to Structured Database Environments
