New Data Science Certificate Program (Fall 2024)
Category : Student Opportunities
Data Science Certificate (Officially begins at RSPH in Fall 2024)
The rise of data science has driven advances in technology across almost all areas of our life, including health. Modern computational tools give us the ability to manage, process, and analyze data on previously unthinkable scales. Recent advances in statistics and machine learning allow us to glean new insights for these data. These new advances demand an innovative approach to training public health practitioners of the future. Trainees should be equipped with a skill set that allows them to address challenges raised by modern approaches to data collection and analysis. Trainees must also be equipped with an understanding of the challenges, limitations, and ethical implications of these novel approaches. Students in the Data Science Certificate program at RSPH will be trained to meet the needs of a rapidly advancing health research field. Pursuing data science training within a top public health school will allow students to see how modern data science can be used towards advancing the public good, rather than increasing corporate profits.
This certificate will be available for MPH & MSPH degree candidates in all departments at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. There are no pre-requisite courses for the Certificate. 1st year RSPH students may take courses in their 1st year within the Data Science Certificate which will be counted toward the certificate when it officially begins in Fall 2024.
