The data analyst is a highly trained professional who performs the analysis, running various mathematical calculations to determine how the data samples might best be applied to profit the business. Most importantly, the data analyst evaluates risk - culling statistical information to determine whether a company is accidentally harming itself. As most companies are always looking to expand their businesses, or at least improve their business practices, data analysis is an essential and profitable field.
Wesleyan’s applied data analysis major is designed to teach contemporary data analysis techniques while also allowing students to take full advantage of studying at a liberal arts college. Emphasis is on thinking statistically, evaluating assumptions, and developing practical skills for real-life applications to fields such as medicine, politics, education, and beyond.
Students who choose to study applied data analysis will use methods from computer science to enhance their study of other interests while acquiring skills that are both useful for graduate level research and marketable to modern industries. Students are encouraged to take courses in the arts, humanities, and sciences while learning how to use technology to push their growth and understanding in their chosen field of interest.
Choose between 3 different degree programs: bachelor of arts, bachelor of fine arts, or bachelor of science in nursing.
The pre-law minor offers students focused course work to prepared them for pursuing a J.D. and a legal career, with a combination of courses that focus directly on a particular area of law and others that help develop a skill that will be particularly needed in law school. In addition to studying politics and government, students will take courses in related areas, such as business, communication, ethics, logic, and the history of United States civil rights to develop knowledge and skills that they may use in the study of law.
Guidelines for law school admission do not designate any one particular area in which a student must major in order to be admitted to law school, so students may combine this minor with any major they desire, whether it is politics and global affairs, art or environmental studies, to name just three.
Students who have been admitted to the 3+3 Accelerated J.D. Program in conjunction with Mercer University would be well advised to declare the pre-law minor. Academic Catalogue
