The BASc(SDS) degree addresses our rapidly changing, data driven society, where economic, political and technological factors are interconnected.

The programme aims to drive and catalyse new ways of thinking when making sense of data and applying data science in the context of social sciences. It takes an interdisciplinary approach, integrating information science, computer science, mathematics, statistics and social sciences to address social issues and societal challenges.

Social data science is an area of great demand in the twenty-first century and is expected to grow globally and locally across industries, such as information technology, marketing, corporate setting, consulting, health care, financial services, government, NGOs, academia, retail and consumer services, gaming, and education-related organisations.
