Data Analytics with R

Stock Market Graph

Boise State's Data Science for Liberal Arts program mentioned as a way to respond to Tech Skills Gap in this Encoura article: "Responding to the Tech Skills Gap: Build, Buy, Partner...or Don't"

The Data Analytics with R program (formerly Data Science for the Liberal Arts) began at Boise State in 2018.  As Program Coordinator, I believe that all students (regardless of discipline) can benefit from learning how to effectively analyze data. I utilize data science skills in my research to understand human behavior.  As data becomes more ubiquitous in the world, it is increasingly imperative that all students acquire basic knowledge of data visualization, management, analysis, and interpretation.
