Integrative Data Analytics*
An interdisciplinary perspective of data analytics with a human and ethical focus
* Pending MHEC Approval
The newly-created Integrative Data Analytics major, pending MHEC approval, is an interdisciplinary major in which students can choose to specialize in Data and Mathematical Sciences or another existing major (economics, peace studies, and environmental studies). Students choosing to specialize in an existing major will apply data analysis, mathematical modeling, and computational techniques in courses such as Machine Learning and Data Mining to solve complex problems in that discipline.
Students choosing to specialize in Data and Mathematical Sciences will take courses such as Artificial Intelligence, Signal Processing, and Cyber Security, and learn why Data Science techniques work so that they can create new techniques to solve complex problems in any discipline.
Goucher’s Integrative Data Analytics majors will graduate prepared and competitive in their field:
- well-grounded in a mathematical foundation and with computational competence,
- with the ability to analyze large datasets
- having an interdisciplinary perspective with a human and ethical focus, a perspective that Goucher College has the unique ability to provide.
