If you’ve thought about trying to boost your data skills, check out Coursera’s catalog of free classes. In particular, Johns Hopkins is about to start a nine-class specialization in data science.
This spring, Johns Hopkins’ data science specialization gets underway. It’s nine classes, the first of which begins April 7 (repeat sessions are also offered during the next few months). Students can earn an optional "Verified Certificate," which costs $49 for each of the nine courses. Those who complete all nine courses plus a final capstone project — and pay for a certificate for each — will earn a Specialization Certificate from Johns Hopkins.
But — to reiterate — any of the nine courses can be taken for free if you don’t mind skipping the certificates.
The professors for Johns Hopkins’ data science specialization include: Brian Caffo, professor in the department of biostatistics; Roger Peng, associate professor of biostatistics; and Jeff Leek, assistant professor of biostatistics.
