South Coast College Adds New Major Focused On Interpreting Data


We are bombarded with information, and data, but what does it mean?

One South Coast college will help students answer that question, by offering a new degree in data analytics.

Westmont College has created an interdisciplinary major which includes math, computer science, and business.

Westmont officials say the new major will help fill a growing demand for analysts who can help translate, and communicate the key points of data.

Lance Orozco has been News Director of KCLU since 2001, providing award-winning coverage of some of the biggest news events in the region, including the Thomas and Woolsey brush fires, the deadly Montecito debris flow, the Borderline Bar and Grill attack, and Ronald Reagan's funeral.
