Educational Resources

Below is a list of data science learning resources at Brown/DSI—this is a work in progress and we expect to be adding to this regularly.

Data Gymnasia

Data Gymnasia are short online courses providing data-related skills in math, probability and statistics, and computer programming. Many of these modules can be used to prepare for our Master's in Data Science program.
