Carroll's Bachelor’s in Data Science program blends the fields of mathematics, computer science, statistics, and business analytics to provide a unique and integrated learning experience. You will take courses that teach you to gather, wrangle, and visualize data; make predictions based off of past behaviors with machine learning; and deal with the massive data sets of today. As a data science major, your coursework will be a blend of computer science, mathematics and statistics, and data science.
Our data science degree can help you build your communication skills as you present your course assignments individually and in teams, both in writing and through oral presentations. You can practice what you learn in the classroom by participating in competitions like the Montana Mathematical Modeling Contest (MMMC), or the international Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) and its sister, the Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling (ICM). These fun and intense competitions provide great opportunities for you to test your knowledge and ability to solve real world problems.
In recent decades there has been an explosion in both the generation of and the analysis of data. Data science is a rapidly growing field where you will be asked to draw from skill sets ranging across many disciplines to analyze large and complicated data sets. Our Data Science degree gives students this exact background along with the applied and practical experience to get you ready for modern industry-scale data science problems. There isn’t any industry that Data Science hasn’t impacted in the past years, and Carroll’s liberal arts focus will give you a well-rounded and deep education that prepares you to jump in to your chosen industry.
At Carroll, our Data Science major focuses on blending the statistical, mathematical, and computational skills needed to succeed as a data scientist or analyst. Our small class sizes will guarantee that you have individualized attention and that your professors will be partners in your education. We are passionate about the work we do; we will get to know you as freshmen and will work with you to achieve your individual goals.
