Students learning Data Science at Flatiron School

About Introduction to Data Science

This part-time course provides students who are already familiar with concepts in data science with the skills to extract meaning from datasets too large for Excel. Over the course of two weekends, students will learn to gain customer insights by analyzing a public dataset with hundreds of thousands of records using the pandas library and Python.

Why Data Science?

In our connected world, the ability to analyze data and communicate insights is an increasingly valuable skillset. Data science positions are on the rise, but finding a great data scientist isn’t easy. It’s difficult enough for recruiting departments to find adept PhDs and talented programmers to fill their open positions—let alone candidates with both a solid understanding of data and the programming schools to match. We’re so excited to start helping people who are passionate about data get the programming skills they need to meet the realities of today’s job market—and to make their data even more meaningful.


All Data Science students should feel comfortable using Excel for basic statistics—including concepts such as mean, mode, median, outliers and normal distributions.

Course Details

Tuition is $1,500. Students who are already comfortable with Python do not have to attend the Python portion of the course. These students can contact us at for a discount code. All courses will be taught in-person at the Flatiron School campus in The Financial District.
