Who You Are Now

You are interested in Data Science as a field but don’t live in a metro with a Galvanize campus, or would prefer to have the flexibility of online learning at your own pace. You are potentially interested in making a career change into Data Science but want to learn more about the discipline before committing to something like an immersive course.

What You'll Be Capable Of

You will demonstrate these competencies by completing a project with the guidance of your mentor:

  • Retrieving data from a database using SQL.
  • Creating visualizations of your data using Python.
  • Calculating descriptive statistics on your data using Python.

Online Learning with Industry Professional Mentors

Work independently with 4 mentor sessions per month for 30 minutes each alongside a Data Scientist and access to online resources curated by Galvanize Data Science Instructors. Your Personal Mentor is not only your partner in-code, but a seasoned industry professional who is as dedicated to your success as you are. Our mentors are specifically trained to help people of all levels learn Data Science from the ground up. You don't have a teacher, you have a partner dedicated to your success.
