Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics and Data Science
Your Solution for an Applied Mathematics Career
This program is offered on Campus and Online.
You have a knack for mathematics. Every decision you make is based on logical, analyzed information. With a bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics and data science from Post University, you can turn your natural talents and tendencies into a new career. Through comprehensive coursework, you will become well-versed in statistics and computer programming and prepare for positions such as clinical data manager, statistical analyst, operations research analyst, logistics analyst, mathematician, database architect or natural sciences manager.
As a student in our applied mathematics and data science degree program, you’ll learn the necessary skills to execute useful mathematical analysis in finance, economics, biology, social sciences, business and data science. Students will gain experience in programming for:
- Data compilation
- Powerful statistical analysis methods
- Modeling techniques and strategies
- Drawing data-based conclusions
- Presenting compelling quantitative narratives
At Post University, you won’t have to worry about getting lost in the crowd. We keep our class sizes small to encourage in-depth discussions and collaborative problem-solving. The instructors you will learn from have professional expertise, to help you take what you learn in the classroom and apply it to real-world situations. We also match you with an Academic Advisor to guide you along your college-to-career path, as part of Post’s “with you all the way” promise!
