Data science is the science of extracting meaningful information from data. In this course, students develop the foundational abilities in data visualization and data wrangling (i.e. data cleaning and manipulation). Next to traditional data coming in the form of two-dimensional tables, we explore non-traditional data types (e.g., spatial, text, network) and interactive data graphics. The course includes much hands-on work (labs, projects) with example datasets coming from sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities.
