Course Content

It’s hard to think of a professional industry that doesn’t benefit from making data more understandable. Every STEM field benefits from understanding data—and so do fields in government, finance, marketing, history, consumer goods, service industries, education, sports, and so on.

Skill sets are changing to accommodate a data-driven world. It is increasingly valuable for professionals to be able to use data to make decisions and use visuals to tell stories of when data informs the who, what, when, where, and how. 

Through our Introduction to Data Science Short Course, you'll have the opportunity to explore the most popular tools and skills for Data Analysts today.

Each module of the course comes with recorded videos, detailed walk-throughs, interactive quizzes, and real-world projects.
