Description:Data science takes data and turns it into insights that are enlightening, novel and support important decision making. As data collection increases, there is a demand for data science in every discipline – business, finance, health care, sports and more.

The demand for data scientists and data literacy is growing. This skillset – the ability to handle, analyze and visualize data – is becoming essential.

Western’s Data Science programming empowers you to understand this emerging field through integrated and multi-disciplinary courses and programs to not only learn the principles, but apply it to a future career.

You can complete this program as part of a Bachelor or Honours Bachelor degree. Registration in the honours degree usually begins in the second year, but admission may be gained in the third or fourth year if you meet requirements.
