The undergraduate Certificate in Large Data Analysis requires a minimum of 18 s.h. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in work for the certificate. The certificate may be earned by any student admitted to the University of Iowa who is not concurrently enrolled in a UI graduate or professional degree program.

Students majoring in computer science, mathematics, or statistics may count a maximum of 6 s.h. of course work for their major toward the certificate. Students pursuing other majors should consult with their major advisors to ascertain whether they may count certificate course work toward their majors.

Most of the certificate courses have prerequisites not included in the certificate requirements. Students need to select courses for which they have met the prerequisites.

Some of the prerequisites (or their equivalents) for the certificate include the following.

CS:1210Computer Science I: Fundamentals4
MATH:1850Calculus I4
