As part of the focus on data analytics, you will cover topics such as how to design and manipulate databases with relational algebra and SQL. You will also analyse (big) data in order to improve organisational decision-making, using techniques such as regression analysis, clustering, distance measures, probability and distributions.
All of Northumbria’s information science postgraduate courses are accredited by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals. This accreditation makes our courses stand out and enhances their credibility and currency among employers, and is also crucial for progressing to Chartership status once qualified.
Data analytics is firmly in the spotlight due to transformations in information science and the emergence of big data. As we look to the future, which will be marked by ever greater capabilities for data processing, and a rising expectation that major decisions should be based on data-driven insights, data analytics will become increasingly valued and rewarded.
On graduation, you will be well placed to take advantage of this trend. Employers are looking for information professionals who can develop new insights through mastery of their subject and critical scholarship. With your Masters qualification, you will be equipped to make a difference, advance your practice and make well-balanced judgements. You could work for a wide range of employers in the field of data analytics or you could consider freelance roles as a consultant. Your Masters qualification can also form the basis for further postgraduate studies at a higher level.
