The Bachelor of Science (BS) is a 4-year, 128-credit program, requiring students to complete all RCNJ General Education requirements along with required 48 credits in Data Science, Mathematics, and Computer Science.  As part of their degree requirements, Data Science majors are also required to complete a minor or 2nd major to gain domain knowledge in a particular field, to better contextualize their data studies.
