MRU announces bachelor’s degree in data science


Mount Royal University will be launching a four-year bachelor’s degree in data science that the university says is the first of its kind in the province. Students will learn about math, statistics, and computer science and domain knowledge and will have the opportunity to pursue various concentrations, specialized courses, and work-integrated learning. Graduates will be prepared for work as data scientists, data analysts, and data and artificial intelligence domain architects. “Employers have told us that graduates who can extract valuable insights from datasets are increasingly sought after,” said MRU Science and Technology Dean Dr Jonathan Withey. “We are meeting the needs of Alberta learners seeking to embrace a wide variety of opportunities in the field of data science.”
