Denison offers three types of degrees: B.A., B.S., and B.F.A. The most popular majors are Economics, Biology, Communication, Psychology, History, and English. Students can create their own major (called an interdepartmental major).
In 2016, the college added two new majors: data analytics and global commerce. In an article published in The Huffington Post, Denison president Adam Weinberg argues that the study of big data may not be unique for post-secondary education, but the marriage of liberal arts and data analytics is a unique concept. "In short," he writes. "a liberal arts background gives data analytics its soul." The interdisciplinary major combines courses in mathematics and computer science, electives from the social and natural sciences and four new courses in data analytics.Early leadership in women's education (click on image to read inscription)
These courses allow students to acquire a foundation, learn the technique, apply the technique across disciplines, and pull it all together. According to Weinberg, this foundation will help students frame questions appropriately, work in interdisciplinary teams, communicate results effectively, and make ethical decisions. As reported by The Newark Advocate, graduates from this major may work in fields like marketing, product development, public health and other vocations
