The Data Analytics (DAN) minor in the Mathematics BA/BS degree is to provide a focus on basic and more advanced training in data analysis for social science and biology majors. This program is designed to enhance student employment prospects through the acquisition of sought-after data analytic skills and to enhance student ability to engage more deeply with societal issues through appropriate analysis of relevant data, especially through issues arising in their major.

The DAN minor focuses on providing a student with a viable and attractive route to appropriate and useful data analytics education and training, consistent with his/her major study in a data-driven and data-aware society.

For this minor, you complete the total number of 6 courses with a total number of 18 credit hours, detailed below.  A minor must be completed at the time of the degree and will be so noted on the student’s transcript.  A student cannot be readmitted to the University to complete only a minor.
