SST 295-03 - Special Topic: Data Wrangling for Non-Programmers

1 credits (Spring)
Previously unimaginable amounts of data are available online, but before you can use the data you need to wrangle it. In this course you’ll learn to access data via APIs, bring data in JSON and XML formats into Excel, combine it with data from other sources, and reshape it and aggregate it to produce exactly the data files you need to do your research. Course uses Excel; no programming required. Cannot be taken for credit by students who have taken a CSC class at the 200-level or above.

Prerequisite: SST 115 SST 125 STA 209 POL 237 , POL 239 , or POL 258 .       
Note: Dates: January 27 to March 17. Half-semester deadlines apply.
Instructor: Bauder
