Course Descriptions

The Certificate in Data Management and Statistical Analysis will provide students with the data analysis skills required for a successful career in any industry, but especially in the social, behavioral, or health science sectors. The coursework will prepare students for further graduate education or equip them with the skills necessary to correctly interpret and apply data analytics to decision-making in their workplace. Students will master advanced quantitative and computational concepts in addition to database management for programming languages like R, Python, SPSS, and SAS. With no prior technical experience necessary, this online certificate is an excellent way to gain this practical knowledge. Please note, a bachelor's degree is required to enroll in this certificate program.

This course introduces students to techniques of data analysis and statistical inference based on the General Linear Model (GLM). The major topics covered in this class include simple/multiple regression, one- and two-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) followed by multiple comparisons, Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA), and Repeated Measures ANOVA. This course aims to provide a solid conceptual background of these topics, as well as the analytic skills for conducting educational and psychological research in practice. Knowledge of basic algebra and SPSS is required, as is an understanding of the fundamental principles of descriptive statistics and hypothesis testing. Knowledge of calculus is not required. Students will conduct statistical analyses using real datasets.

This course will provide: (1) a conceptually-oriented introduction to regression methods and (2) opportunities to learn related data-analytic techniques.

This course introduces the use of statistical software packages R for acquiring, managing, and preparing datasets that are required to produce reliable and valid statistical inferences. With a special focus on R, the course will cover a broad range of hands-on activities in the data analytic process including data coding, file manipulation tasks, data screening, statistical analysis, and also provide a brief introduction to R programming.
