The Department of Data Science currently offers the Bachelor of Science in Data Science program with two concentrations: Precision Health and Creative Industries.
Precision Health: Precision Health is an emerging field that takes a big data approach in an attempt to precisely identify individual needs and conditions to enhance health and wellness through disease prediction and prevention. It shifts the healthcare paradigm from the traditional “reactive” approach, where a person is treated after a disease is diagnosed, to a newer “proactive” approach where disease prediction and prevention are emphasized.
Creative Industries: Creative economy refers to industries in which the creative element is central to what is being produced, for example, advertising, film and television, broadcasting, publishing, architecture, design, music, visual arts, sports analysis, and performing arts. Data analysis has become essential in understanding consumer behavior, predicting consumption patterns, and deciding which productions will succeed in the creative economy.BS in Data Science › Program Concentration
