Class Description


What you'll learn in this data science course:

General Assembly’s Data Science part-time course is a practical introduction to the interdisciplinary field of data science and machine learning, which lies at the intersection of computer science, statistics, and business. You will learn to use the Python programming language to acquire, parse, and model data for informing business strategy.

Who's It For?

This is a fast-paced course with some prerequisites. Students should be comfortable with programming fundamentals, core Python syntax, and basic statistics. There is an option to complete up to 25 hours of online preparatory lessons. The General Assembly Admissions team can discuss your background and learning goals to advise if this course is a good fit for you.

What You'll Learn:

A significant portion of the course is a hands- on approach to fundamental modeling techniques and machine learning algorithms. You’ll also practice communicating your results and insights by compiling technical documentation and a stakeholder presentation. Throughout this expert-designed program, you’ll:

  • Perform exploratory data analysis with Python.
  • Build and refine machine learning models to predict patterns from data sets.
  • Communicate data-driven insights to technical and non-technical audiences alike.
  • Apply what you’ve learned to create a portfolio project: a predictive model that addresses a real-world data problem.

Duration and Study Load:

  • 10 weeks part-time
  • You will be expected to spend time working on homework and projects outside of class hours each week, but the workload is designed to be manageable alongside a full-time job.

Payment Options:

General Assembly offers a variety of different financing options, including installment plans, student loans, income share loans and tuition discounts so you can focus on what counts — your education.


GA classes are online via Zoom and Slack to reflect the most common workplace setup you’ll find once you land your tech job. You will take instructor led sessions and self paced sessions, always with access to real time Instructor feedback. Career Coach support is available from day one and until you find a job both.
