» Bachelor of Science in Data Analytics

Chapman is one of the few universities in the nation that offers this program, which combines the strengths of our Computation programs with those of the Argyros School of Business and Economics to create a hybrid data analytics degree wherein students develop the ability to design and manage the computer infrastructure of a business. Starting fall 2016, this program has replaced the Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems.

Dubbed “the high tech business degree,” faculty members (who are also working scientists) introduce students to the world of cloud computing, analytics, and mobile apps, thereby giving them a technical leg up in the financial sector.   

Internships are critical for a degree of this nature, and the school’s resources have led past students to study at Boeing, Dreamworks, Nickelodeon and Toyota.
This degree prepares students for careers in:

  • systems analysis
  • systems design
  • network security
  • database design
  • programming
  • project leadership
  • systems management
Alumni currently work in many different kinds of companies, including Boeing, Northwestern Mutual, IMS,  and U.S. Technical Services.
