In summer 2022 an 8.5 week intensive course, Introduction to Data Science, is offered to students through an innovative liberal arts (LACOL) partnership. This team-taught class is designed to introduce students to the concepts, theory, and practice of modern data science. Students will learn a range of skills for working with real-world data that apply to many fields of study, research, citizenship, and life. No prior data acumen or coding experience is required, but a foundation in algebra and calculus is strongly recommended.
This course is open to students in the Liberal Arts Collaborative for Digital Innovation (LACOL), a partnership of Amherst College, Bowdoin College, Bryn Mawr College, Carleton College, Davidson College, Hamilton College, Haverford College, Swarthmore College, Vassar College, Washington and Lee University, and Williams College.
Flexible Learning in a Fully Online Class:
Summer students do not need to be resident on their campus during the term, but every student must have daily access to a computer and reliable, high speed internet. Lectures, assignments, data labs, and projects will be conducted in a fully supported, virtual classroom environment with a mix of synchronous (scheduled) and asynchronous class sessions, breakouts, supported work-time, and online office hours. See FAQ and course policies above for more information.
Registration Opens March 1st, 2022!
