The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and the Department of Psychology offer an undergraduate and graduate Certification Program in Data Visualization and Analysis. This pioneering program identifies the skills and knowledge that information workers need to succeed. It trains students to communicate information clearly and effectively through graphic depictions that stimulate and encourage viewer engagement. The students learn how to analyze and portray complex data in an attractive and vivid design format. The students practice preparing real-world data for storing in databases, analyzing data with statistics and machine-learning tools, and using visualization in order to study data and present findings.
To be eligible for financial aid, students must be accepted and matriculated into a degree program. Financial aid for graduate students is available in the form of a FFELP/Stafford Loan, an alternative loan or a personal loan.
