» Bachelor of Science in Data Analytics

As our ability to collect and analyze data continues to grow, so does the need for scientists who can analyze it at a scale never before thought possible. Our Bachelor of Science in Data Analytics makes Chapman one of the few universities in the nation that offers a data science program at the undergraduate level.

This program combines the strengths of our computation programs, with curricula from the Argyros School of Business and Economics, to create a hybrid data analytics degree where students develop the ability to design and manage the computer infrastructure of a business. 

Dubbed “the high tech business degree,” faculty members — who are also working scientists — introduce students to the world of cloud computing, databases, machine learning, artificial intelligence, business analytics and more. The result is a graduate who is prepared to tackle data at any scale in order to reason under the uncertainty of the real world. And because our faculty understand that data science isn’t done in a vacuum, our students leave the B.S.D.A. program understanding that in the context of business — just because something is statistically significant doesn’t mean it’s economically significant.
