The Lafayette Data Analytics Program will be offered during the fall session of 2020 from August 17th-November 20th. The program is composed of two courses, Intro to Applied Data Analytics and Data Visualization, which will run sequentially during the term.
Lectures are online and can be completed any time of day or night, but you will need to stay on track with the other Lafayette students. Additionally, you will be required to attend virtual LiveLabs with your classmates twice weekly.
Twice a week, you will participate in a face-to-face, online session with your instructor and classmates to discuss project work and provide Q&A on the previous lectures.
You will have access to an on-demand online tutor, a coach to make sure you stay on track, a peer pod for group work, and weekly live discussions.
No, these courses are designed for all backgrounds and majors. Rather than starting your courses in theory, your courses will start with a focus on real world application, using tools that remove complexity. These courses are not just “open note”; they are “open everything”, just like the real world.
This course will require you to have access to a computer, stable high-speed internet, and a webcam. We highly recommend utilizing headphones with an integrated microphone as well to ensure the best experience.
No, you can attend these courses from anywhere.
The Lafayette Data Analytics Program is offered in partnership with Podium Education, the leader in developing online programs that empower universities to prepare students for high-growth careers in the digital economy.
