NORTHFIELD, Vt. — As part of the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies’ (CGCS) 2020 new program initiative, Norwich University announced a new online Bachelor of Science in Data Analytics program and an online Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Information Systems program, both of which are set to begin in September 2020.
“Since 1819, Norwich has been committed to providing relevant and forward-looking programs to our students,” Vice President and College of Graduate and Continuing Studies Dean Bill Clements said. “As part of the CGCS 2020 new program initiative, the Data Analytics and Computer Science and Information Systems programs reflect these values, as well as providing lifelong learners with the opportunity to continue self-improvement and bring a new skill set to their workplaces.”

Thinking about COVID-19? So is Norwich University.

The first article in this series will post today.
