Data Visualization Specialization

Specialization Educational Objectives

In addition to the core objectives, a student graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Data Analytics and a specialization in Data Visualization will demonstrate:

  • an ability to visualize data for the purpose of seeing and exploring what is contained within it. Students will have the opportunity to develop visualization strategies that support their ability to make sense of data. 
  • an ability to make visuals - both static and dynamic - as a means of telling the stories found in the analysis of data. By creating compelling visuals using human-centered design principles and practices, students will enhance their ability to engage audiences and provide them with efficient and effective access to knowledge.
