I like how this degree at Eastern University has 7 week terms and is self paced. I love short courses as 16 weeks is just too long for me and I start to lose interest quickly at about the 12 week mark. I want to get in and out and move on to the next subject. A LOT of skills I’ve learned in Tech have been self taught. So I believe this program fits me and I’ll be successful at it.

I’ll try and post weekly about my progress and what I’m learning.

My classes start January 9, 2023 and this is what I’ll be taking for my first course:

  • DTSC 550 Introduction to Statistical Modeling: Introduction to foundational concepts, theories, and techniques of statistical analysis for data science. Students will begin with descriptive statistics and probability, and advance through multiple and logistic regression. Students will also conduct analyses in R. This course is approachable for students with little statistical background and prepares them for DTSC 650: Data Analytics in R

The next term starts March 6, 2023 and this will be my second course:

  • DTSC 650 Data Analytics in R: Continuation of DTSC 550, with an emphasis on statistical techniques most used in modern data science. Will explore in greater depth linear and logistic regression, and continue to additional regression and classification techniques with a focus on application. Analyses will be completed in R.

The degree is only $9,900 and very doable paying out of pocket if necessary, especially with a payment plan. I have been applying for scholarships in STEM and I’m just waiting to see if I’ve won for the year.

Also, I’m looking for an internship to get real world experience, so if you’re hiring, let me know! I want to move towards finance so quantitative research is what I’m targeting.

Stay tuned…
