Data Analysis and Visualization at The City University of New York takes up data visualization and analysis as an interdisciplinary area of study that encompasses statistics, visual aesthetics, interaction design, and data literacy.


Grounded in principles of data ethics and foregrounded in a critical approach to data studies, this Data Analysis and Visualization program at The City University of New York offers students the opportunity to learn about the basics of working with data and to explore fundamental concepts and methods for analyzing and interpreting data and statistics. 

These include how to visualize data, principles of graphic design, and media theory and history. This program will help students think critically and historically about contemporary methods and techniques for working with data.

What you'll study

We offer three areas of study: data analysis, data visualization, and data studies. Across all of these classes, we move from fundamental concepts and methods to more advanced methods. 

We help students gain practical skills in working with data and the theoretical skills to anticipate the future use of data in society, and to understand the possibilities, implications, and limitations of data. Graduates will be able to work in the industry (data analysis, data and information visualization) or to pursue doctoral studies in a range of related disciplines.
