PSYC489Y   Computer Programming for Social Scientists
Credits: 3

Basic computer programming skills are becoming both more essential and more in demand across many disciplines, including the behavioral and social sciences. This course requires no prior programming experience. It will provide hands-on, practically-oriented instruction not available from more traditional sources (books, online tutorials, etc.). Students will become proficient  in a popular programming language like R and Python that will be useful for data manipulation and analysis in psychology and related fields. The solid foundation in programming concepts provided will enable students to extend their skills even beyond the course. The classes are highly interactive and problem-oriented, so students should bring a laptop computer each day.
