Welcome to the new undergraduate major in Social Data Analytics (SoDA)!
Penn State has been a leader in Social Data Analytics at the graduate level through its innovative Big Data Social Science-Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (BDSS-IGERT). Now there’s a Social Data Analytics major available to undergraduates as well.
This site provides information about the goals of the major; degree requirements; and, internships and employment opportunities suited to students with skills in social data analytics. You can also read about faculty research projects that involve students in the collection and analysis of social (aka “big”) data. We hope you enjoy learning about the exciting opportunities this new major provides! To check out the Political Science website, please click here.
