Data Science

For Students

You can join our Data Science Program either as either a standard 12-week course or alternatively as flextime according to your needs and schedule. The standard course is 2 hrs of individualized tutoring weekly for 12 weeks, including supplementary group Zoom lectures and participation in public research colloquia to develop student research projects, but we can also work flexibly to develop alternative learning programs.

This program develops students’ skills in data science for job placement as data scientists or in other roles requiring intensive data analysis (see data science job list) in a variety of institutions – start-ups, non-profit, government, and academia – and in a variety of fields – business analysis, social science, and the natural sciences. We build the specific dimensions of the course of study and problems of applications around the knowledge, skills, and interests of the student. The goal of the course is to develop the capacity to conduct research through the methods of data science and often culminate in a capstone research project to develop a data project portfolio for employers. Although primarily individualized sessions, it will often include group sessions with other data science students for broad-themed lectures and collaborative student research presentations.

Material from past sessions of the program can be found on our blog:
1. Supplementary 10 Lecture Series, A Tutorial in Data Science
2. Public Data Science Research Colloquia Reports
3. Additional programming skill development and job placement information
