The Analytics Associate in Science degree is designed to meet many of the first- and second-year Baccalaureate requirements including the computer programming, mathematics, and database skills essential to complete a 4-year degree. The transfer program has been developed in consultation with the Analytics Department at the University of New Hampshire, Manchester, in order to align program requirements for transfer purposes. Upon completion, students will be in a strong position to complete the remainder of the Bachelor of Science degree with two years of additional study. Other degrees students may wish to pursue include a B.S. in Math/Computer Science or B.S. Statistics.
The Analytics Associate in Science degree is more than just a transfer degree. Students who complete the degree will be in a position to be employed as a junior data scientist. The 2 years of bachelor degree completion primarily focus on the field in which (ultimately) a student might wish to concentrate his/her expertise. The associate degree alone provides an individual with all of the data analytical skills needed to begin a career. Job experience and domain expertise will allow the person to gain more ability to advance his/her career beyond simply junior and entry-level status.
This degree emulates the first two years of four-year college and university degrees in (data) analytics, and prepares students to be successful in one of the disciplines that relies on data science to answer questions, drive business decisions, and conduct research.
