Undergraduate Programs

UToledo’s B.A. program in Data Analytics teaches a blend of communication and analytical skills that will make you highly marketable in the field of data analytics.

CareerCast calls data scientist the best job of 2019. Demand far exceeds supply as more and more companies use data to drive business decisions and seek experts who can understand and manage the data.

Employers want data analysts who know how to analyze the data but who also understand the data in context and can explain it in understandable terms. This balance of skills and knowledge is the crux of our bachelor’s degree program in Data Analytics.

Our B.A. students combine data analytics with a subject area or concentration in the social sciences. You will:

  • Learn an industry and speak its language.
  • Gain communication skills that allow you to pitch data and make it understandable.
  • Gather and organize data from appropriate sources.
  • Be able to analyze data and do basic coding and programming.


UToledo has expanded its offerings in data analytics. We also offer a B.S. in Data Science. The B.S. program is more focused on the front end of data science — collecting and structuring data as well as analysis. There’s more emphasis on coding and programming (science and math), along with science and health data.

Additional options:

  • Minors in Data Analytics and Data Science — if you want a basic knowledge of the field but data isn’t the main focus of your major
  • B.S. in Mathematics with a concentration in data science
  • Master of Applied Business Analytics — a graduate degree that allows you to pair data science with a business discipline, such as accounting, finance or marketing

Top Reasons to Study Data Analytics at UToledo

  1. Learning in context.
    Learn about data in the context of social science — public policy, economics or another concentration of your choosing. The courses you take in these areas allow you to do more appropriate and better analysis within the context of that field.
  2. Experiential learning.
    You won’t just sit and listen to lectures. Our classes focus on problem solving, too.
  3. Unique courses.
    • Data visualization — Learning to present data in a visual, understandable way will make you more marketable.
    • Data ethics —  Our philosophy faculty members help you explore ethical issues commonly faced by data analysts.
  4. Interdisciplinary program.
    Faculty from mathematicians and computer scientists to philosophers and artists teach courses. Although our B.A. program is more social science-oriented, you also will get exposure to health and natural science data as well. This broader focus gives you a greater perspective.
  5. Flexibility.

    UToledo is a comprehensive university with more than 230 degree programs.

    • Concentrations. Choose an area of interest from a wide array of subjects, with the help of your advisor.
    • Dual majors. Consider combining your B.A. in Data Analytics with another major; political science, communication or another field. This is great preparation for graduate school.
  6. Academic support.
    We want you to succeed. We offer tutors specific to the program.
