To earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in data science, a student must earn a grade of “C-” or better in all of the courses listed. A lesser grade in any of these courses must be replaced before the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in data science will be granted. In addition, lesser grades in any of these courses preclude taking subsequent courses for which the deficient courses are prerequisite.
