About the Minor in Data Science and Analytics

Kennesaw State University (KSU) offers a Minor in Data Science and Analytics which is open to all undergraduate students regardless of major. This Minor has been developed to assist KSU students in two ways:

  • To help KSU students differentiate themselves in a competitive job market after graduation. In addition to the broad and deep skills that students will develop through the completion of the Minor, most students will also qualify for one of our software certificates.
  • To help students prepare for an advanced degree – such as an MBA, Medical School, Law School or other graduate programs.

The Minor in Data Science and Analytics instructs students in the translation of data into information to ultimately support and improve decision making in any discipline. As a result, our emphasis in all of our STAT courses is on APPLICATION – not on theory. Although math majors are certainly welcome to pursue the minor, the minor courses were developed with the non-math major in mind.


STAT 1401 or ECON 2300 or STAT 3125 or STAT 2332 or MATH 3332

Students can officially declare the minor in OwlExpress after enrolling in DATA 3010.
