Invest in your future with NYU’s Computational Social Science Certificate Program
Technological change in computation and data over the last 30 years has given rise to a new class of experts: computational social scientists. To prepare you to be a creative contributor to this evolving field, the NYU Graduate School of Arts & Science now offers a certificate in Computational Social Science. The inaugural class begins in September 2021. Learn how you can join us!
The certificate program has been designed by New York University Professor and Nobel laureate Thomas J. Sargent in close collaboration with Chase Coleman and Spencer Lyon. Dr. Sargent, Dr. Coleman, and Dr. Lyon will jointly teach all courses. Sargent, Coleman, and Lyon are key members of the team behind QuantEcon.
The Advanced Certificate in Computational Social Science program consists of four one-semester long classes preceded by an optional online preparatory class.
The four main courses are:
- Mathematical Foundations for Computational Social Science
- Data Tools for Computational Social Science
- Dynamic Models for Computational Social Science
- Machine Learning for Computational Social Science
Graduates of the program will be “street smart” computational social scientists, equipped to succeed in subsequent graduate studies or contribute to the data analytics workflow at top tier research and professional organizations. Learn how this certificate program can open doors for you.
