SFU's City Program is exploring the possibility of offering a Community Data Science program. As a first step, we are introducing a suite of pilot courses that focus on developing the initial theory and skills foundations needed to successfully transform data into information and knowledge. Classes will be small, learner-centred, and with an emphasis on real-world applications.
We are hoping this proposed program will eventually be approved by the SFU Senate as a certificate. Should we receive approval, we then hope to be able to give students who complete the following courses partial credit toward the certificate.
