CBSC 185 - Introduction to Data Science: Trends Over Time


Credits: 3

How can we map our feelings, attitudes, and thoughts over the course of a year? can we effectively monitor our behavior and choices to identify how they impact our mental and physical health? Can we assess employee job satisfaction or student learning over periods of time? In this course students will have an introduction to common ways of examining psychological data over time. Students will learn to use R, a popular open-source programming language, to organize and manage data effectively, create eye-catching and informative data visualizations, and conduct a variety of statistical analyses to identify key trends in data. Students will learn best practices in coding, data handling and management, reproducibility, and data ethics. No prior programming experience is required.
