Program Overview


Bryant University offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Data Science, combining expertise with the latest technologies, as well as the opportunity to solve real-world problems. As an early adopter in this area of study, Bryant remains invested in developing these programs and ensures all students work with real data throughout their studies.

Interdisciplinary Studies: Applied Analytics

The Applied Analytics Concentration was introduced to provide students with a solid foundation in integrating technology and analytical methods to acquire, analyze and apply information for projects in diverse areas such as literary and historical text analysis, social media and web analytics, bioinformatics and business decision-making. This concentration must be taken concurrently with a required primary major in the College of Arts and Sciences or concentration in the College of Business. By satisfactorily completing four SAS-based analytics courses, SAS and Bryant will jointly award a certificate in analytics.
