Level up with a unique Data Science bachelor's degree from the College of Science at UTA. Maverick Scientists are becoming better data scientists and sharpening their ability to do better science by earning a data science degree with an emphasis in their specific field of science. Discover important data relationships, learn to sort through large data sets and extract meaningful insights using industry standard tools and best practices, leveraging data to answer difficult questions and tackle real world challenges, directly in their scientific area of interest or across multiple disciplines.
Discover your future in one of the world’s fastest growing disciplines and upgrade your traditional science area of focus with a Data Science Bachelor’s Degree in UT-Arlington’s College of Science through the program’s unique Data Science + Science Area of Focus format.
Learn to sort through large data sets and extract meaningful insights to tackle real world problems with UTA’s multi-disciplinary approach while also applying the tools and concepts into your specific area of research. A diverse and changing world requires individuals who work together from...
Leverage your new skills and knowledge with a capstone project – either an internship in industry or research project at UTA – and use the college’s prime location in the heart of the DFW Metroplex for internship and career networking opportunities with start-ups to Fortune 500s.
UTA students currently have two flexible degree plan options – a bachelor's of science degree in Data Science with an emphasis in a science field (Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Geology, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology); or a minor in Data Science to pair with an existing major. Your course schedule may vary based on transferable credits or credits earned.
Students who wish to obtain a bachelor’s in Data Science must complete 120 hours, to include the following:
DATA Science Foundations:
DATA Science Core:
DATA Science Capstone:
Additionally, students in the bachelor's program will complete a capstone project – an internship in industry or a research project in the university – which provides hands on work in a domain.
Students who wish to obtain a minor in Data Science must take at least 19-20 semester hours of DATA or related courses, to include the following:
Foundational courses (take any four of these):
And any one of the following elective courses:
An additional DATA 34xx course listed in section 1
"Students who graduate from this program will have developed strengths in data-driven problem solving and data visualization based on their ability to apply statistical and mathematical analysis using program-acquired database and programming skills. They will also have gained skills in the presentation of technical data in a form that non-technical management leaders can understand and implement. These skills are in high demand by employers."
