Certificate Description

In recent years, the field of data science has taken off, as every industry and function increasingly relies on data-driven insights to make decisions.

The statistical programming language R is widely used in data science and understanding the fundamentals of how it works can be helpful, whether you’re considering a career in data science or looking to better communicate with data scientists on your team. In this certificate program, you will develop an essential foundation in R programming skills, then use those skills to understand and summarize data.

In the first course, you will study R programming principles and use R for data manipulation, visualization, and sampling. Building on your skills, you will summarize and visualize real data sets, draw conclusions from those data, and evaluate the uncertainty surrounding those conclusions. Throughout the process, you will develop hypotheses about your data, then use simulations and statistical techniques to evaluate your hypotheses. You will also practice using the Tidyverse open-source R packages to clean and organize your data sets. Finally, you will have the opportunity to manipulate and visualize data using more advanced techniques.

This certificate will ultimately introduce you to the fundamentals of data science and enhance your ability to draw meaningful conclusions from data.
