Can you become a data scientist with a bachelor’s degree?

It’s possible, but not likely. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, earning jobs in the field of data science often requires a master’s degree in computer science or something similar.

Keep in mind that while sometimes referred to interchangeably, data analytics and data science are not the same thing. Data analytics represents a focused scope of data interpretation, while data science is more concerned with the tools, materials and models provided for analysts.

Our undergraduate data analytics courses are designed specifically to build knowledge and skills in analysis, rather than delve too deeply into data science concepts.
