If you have an interest in math, science, or investigation, Siena's data science major is right up your alley. Companies in every field need employees with the technical know-how to transform all that data into meaningful information. In fact, IBM predicts that by 2020, the number of jobs for all U.S. data professionals will increase to 2,720,000!
At Siena, you’ll develop a mastery of data mathematics, statistics and programming. You’ll get the hands-on training and experience in finding patterns, cleaning data and using it to make decisions, and you’ll graduate as a data scientist.

So now you see why data science, but here’s why data science at Siena. For starters, Siena is the only college in New York State’s Capital Region to offer a bachelor’s degree in data science.
