New Major In Data Analytics
Data analytics is a new interdisciplinary major that applies fundamental scientific principles toward the analysis of large, complex data sets. The core focuses on computer sciences, mathematics and statistics along with the development of critical thinking and communication skills.  Areas of specialization include biomedical informatics, business analytics, and computational analytics.  Students will learn principles of data representation and big data management, software design and programming, and statistical modeling and analysis.  The degree will open the door to nearly limitless career opportunities as companies increasingly seek employees with the skills to build and query large data sets and understand how to ask the right questions to extract critical, useable knowledge.  For more information, email data-analytics@osu.edu.
