New GSR 230 course announced for Spring 2018

General Studies Requirements (GSR) will offer a new GSR 230 course on the analysis of data and data visualization in Spring 2018. The course is titled, "Telling Stories with Data: Looking for needles in a haystack." The course will be offered Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2-3:50 p.m. 

A short description of the course can be found below:

Ever wondered how companies like Amazon know more about you? Ever wondered how weather data is represented in the news? Using interdisciplinary concepts, we will learn how to tackle big data. Complex data sets are being generated continuously. Many questions arise as to what these data are telling us. Are we missing something? How do we look for signals in these large datasets? Using computer programs like Excel and R programming we will learn how to manage, sort and represent these data. Students will be encouraged to identify a data set related to a real world problem and use the tools learned in class to tell their stories. 

No programming skills prerequisites, students will be taught the necessary skills during the class. Students are encouraged to enroll. If you have any questions, feel free to  contact gaurav.arora@gallaudet.edu.
