Specialization Educational Objectives
In addition to the core objectives, a student graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Data Analytics with a specialization in Biomedical and Public Health Analytics will:
- demonstrate an understanding of the core sub-disciplines of biomedical informatics and public health that play a role in the design, implementation, and management of clinical, research, and translational information systems.
- describe the contributing theoretical frameworks that are conventionally used to inform the design and use of biological data, medical information systems, and integrative data discovery and analysis tools.
- apply critical evaluation skills that allow for the analysis of system design, interpretation and utilization of biomedical and public health information systems and data.
Degree Planning Resources
These documents outline the prerequisite structure within the core curriculum and demonstrate how students flow through the required courses for the Data Analytics major with a specialization in Biomedical and Public Health Analytics.
