This is an action-packed specialization is for data science enthusiasts who want to acquire practical skills for real world data problems. It appeals to anyone interested in pursuing a career in Data Science, and already has foundational skills (or has completed the Introduction to Applied Data Science specialization). You will learn Python - no prior programming knowledge necessary. You will then learn data visualization and data analysis. Through our guided lectures, labs, and projects you’ll get hands-on experience tackling interesting data problems. Make sure to take this specialization to solidify your Python and data science skills before diving deeper into big data, AI, and deep learning.

The specialization consists of 4 courses. Suggested time to complete each course is 3-4 weeks. If you follow recommended timelines it would take 3 to 4 months to complete the entire specialization.
What background knowledge is necessary?
No prior experience in data science or programming is required. However it is recommended that you have some foundational knowledge about data science which can be developed by taking the the Introduction to Applied Data Science specialization by IBM.
Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
It is strongly recommended that you take the Python for Data Science course first. Then you can take either the Visualization or the Data Science course - whichever you prefer. And end with the Captsone course.
What will I be able to do upon completing the Specialization?
You will be able to learn practical Python skills, and apply them to interesting Data Visualization and Data Analysis problems.
