"Programming for Data Science": This certificate focuses on the open-source programming environments seen in analytics and Big Data applications - R, Python, Hadoop, SQL. The program includes applications to predictive modeling, social data mining and text analytics. This certificate provides exams to test programming proficiency. A typical student profile in this program might be someone working in IT who wants to expand into analytics; a student with programming experience would require about a year to complete all courses. Instruction in basic programming is available for novice programmers (in this situation, the course of study would require 2-3 years - becoming a good programmer requires lots of practice).

These certificates are part of The Institute's Programs in Analytics and Statistical Studies (PASS): part-time programs for professionals seeking to add to their skill set. The courses are typically four weeks, and do not require that you be online at any particular time of day.
