Through DePaul’s Data Science program, you’ll develop a deep understanding of computer science, mathematics and information management — the three primary components of the data science profession.
As you work towards your B.S. in Data Science, program coursework will teach you:

Mathematical foundations in data analysis
Technical skills for data processing and application development
Advanced machine learning and statistical modeling techniques
Analytical and communication skills to explain results in a meaningful way
You’ll take a common core of courses in computer science, programming, mathematics and software during your first two years, after which you will select data science courses with a more narrow focus based on your interests.
