Will I earn university credit for completing the Research Methods and Statistics Specialization?
Coursera courses and certificates don't carry university credit, though some universities may choose to accept Specialization Certificates for credit. Check with your institution to learn more.
What will I be able to do upon completing the Research Methods and Statistics Specialization?
At the end of this Specialization, you will be performing your own statistical analyses using the programming language R, with no prior knowledge of programming. Learners who complete the Research Methods and Statistics for Social Science Specialization will learn more about scientific rigor and integrity. You’ll have the methods, statistics and research skills required to complete a typical Masters program in the Social Sciences or the Johns Hopkins Data Science Specialization, and also be ready for more advanced courses on big data or multivariate statistics.
