It's hard to find an industry or academic discipline unaffected by data science. Retailers, activists, politicians, athletes, media outlets—all rely heavily on data science, modeling, and big data systems to guide their success.
Companies like Netflix, Amazon, and Google use machine learning and huge data sets to build groundbreaking, user behavior-based systems that encourage us to watch, buy, or listen. Nonprofits and non-governmental organizations use data when organizing disaster relief and preventing the spread of disease. At Champlain, you'll have four years to explore the various applications of data science and analysis.
You are in a unique position to be part of the data revolution. Champlain's focus on social responsibility, sustainability, and business ethics will inform your studies in one of the most influential fields in modern history.
The Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to dig into fundamental data science courses beginning in your first semester. Our practice-based approach to learning will have you completing projects and real client work in classes, with support from our expert faculty.
This early learning gives you plenty of time to take on multiple internships—and even intern abroad—throughout your time at Champlain. These internships allow you to explore the field, determine your professional interests, and build a stand-out résumé and LinkedIn profile.
