Adventures in Data Science is back in Winter 2024! DataLab directors Carl Stahmer and Pamela Reynolds, with engagement from the entire DataLab team, teach the first course in a two-quarter series offering a hands-on introduction to data science. This course is cross-listed as IST 8 in the University Honors Program, and STS 115. Space is limited.

This first course (Winter 2024) focuses on acquiring the skills necessary for performing data-driven, interdisciplinary research and is the first course in a challenging two-quarter series. Combined, the two-quarter honors/elective series introduces students to the basics of computer programming and data analysis using the R programming language and provides hands-on exposure to the core skills needed to work in interdisciplinary, team-science settings.

Prerequisite(s): Students who have declared or are intending to declare a traditionally non-computational major and/or minor receive priority registration. Students from the social sciences, humanities, and arts are particularly encouraged to register for this course. Undergraduate and graduate students from outside the University Honors Program can enroll with instructor permission.
