Master’s Degree Comparison: Data Science Versus Data Analytics

Do you know the difference between a Data Science degree and a Data Analytics degree? Many people believe that they are one and the same. However, an organization may actually have both a data analyst and a data scientist on their team to handle and interpret information in certain ways. Each job role is distinct in that they work individually to fulfill specific organizational needs, while at the same time complementing one another to reach solutions.1 


How to Become a Data Analyst?

In this age of technology and information overload, organizations have more data at their fingertips than ever before. So how do they turn all this data into meaningful and actionable knowledge?


What is Machine Learning?

Machine learning is the study and practice of computers “learning” to solve a complex problem without being explicitly programmed.


Computational Biology and Bioinformatics: Two Fields Changing the World

Students of Lewis University's concentration and certificate in computational biology and bioinformatics can certainly expect to learn about cutting-edge technologies, and they will have opportunities to use their skills in hands-on settings.


Demand for Data Scientists Outpaces Available Candidates

Harvard Business Review has called it the “sexiest job of the 21st Century.” It’s the data scientist, and the job category is one of the hottest job trends in years.


What is the Best Programming Language for Data Science?

The debate over which programming language is best has raged through the ages – or at least, for the past couple of years. So overworked and seemingly endless have the disagreements become among computer programmers in recent years that humorists from the field sometimes claim that Socrates preferred Python while Plato was an advocate of Julia.
